Destination Leadership

For 45 years, Leadership Tulsa has been an idea. An idea that talented people from many different backgrounds and viewpoints, who share a love for Tulsa, can come together to build knowledge, skills and connections in service to this community. Our alumni are serving in every sector of this community and giving of their time through public, nonprofit and professional service.

Today, we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to support our expansion with 7,800 square feet of customized office, training and co-working space, which will create a new Leadership Center in a renovated downtown warehouse. The selected location, 415 E 12th Street, will allow us to become an anchor tenant in the emerging downtown historic Gunboat Park neighborhood just south of the downtown Home Depot. We anticipate moving into the space in Spring 2020.

This new space will allow us to:
• Host and expand our own program offerings
• Provide vastly more alumni and member engagement, trainings and workshops
• Be a convenient location for your company or organization off-sites
• Provide turnkey teambuilding and strategic planning services to groups
• Offer co-working space and a limited number of leased offices to our members who are engaged in entrepreneurial activities or just need a convenient downtown hang-out between meetings

We invite you to be a part of creating this community convening space that propels innovation, promotes an exchange of ideas and stimulates creativity, right in the heart of downtown. Will you please give generously today so we can reach our leadership destination?
