Our mission is to identify, develop and connect diverse leaders who impact the community through service.
For over 48 years, Leadership Tulsa has been providing community leadership development programs. We were founded in 1973 as a joint project of the Tulsa Chamber of Commerce and the Junior League of Tulsa to help build the leadership capacities of Tulsa area professionals.
Our Leadership Tulsa programs annually involve up to 200 adults representing a diverse cross-section of the community who learn about the infrastructure, needs and resources of Tulsa and how to get involved to effect positive change.
Classes are chosen through a competitive selection process. Class members participate in training and educational experiences focused on building leadership skills and understanding the community.
STATEMENT ON DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION
Leadership Tulsa is committed to creating an environment where diversity, equity, and inclusion are embedded in processes, practices, and policies in the pursuit of our mission. We commit to cultivating an inclusive environment in which our employees, board members, program participants, alumni, members, funders, and vendors understand, respect, and reflect the diversity of Tulsa. We embrace the rich aspects of identity in our community. We believe that together we have the power to create meaningful outcomes.
Once they have completed a program, individuals are offered the opportunity to stay connected through membership. We offer members multiple programs to expand their networks and gain continuing community education.
Long past their time in one of our programs, our members also stay involved in the community. As part of a recent membership survey we learned that our membership serve on more than 200 boards and volunteer hundreds of hours a year.
Leadership Tulsa is governed by 30 board members and has hundreds of dues paying members committed to ensuring the future health and prosperity of the Tulsa community. We invite you to get involved in this dynamic and community-changing group by applying for one of our many specific leadership development programs.
