Our Mission: To inform, develop, and engage committed leaders by broadening their understanding of and involvement in issues and opportunities facing the state.

Since 1995, we’ve worked with state luminaries to improve North Carolina’s quality of life through visionary programming.

Through Leadership North Carolina, leaders turn their collective knowledge into bold action.

Our Program

Equipping Leaders for Our Future

2-1

We work with individuals across the private and public sectors to develop leaders who want to drive improvements and influence outcomes. The program takes a comprehensive, integrated approach that showcases how its five focus areas are deeply intertwined. Program participants collaborate on solving real challenges, and they roll up their sleeves to volunteer in ways that enrich and support citizens across the state.
