LEAD Together

The Right Course at the Right Time for LGBTQ Leaders



Created in partnership with Oklahomans for Equality and Leadership Tulsa, LEAD Together LGBTQ Leadership Program is now accepting applications for the inaugural class beginning in 2019. LEAD together is the only program in Oklahoma addressing LGBTQ leadership development.

“We see persistent gaps within leadership ranks that overlook the talents of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender, and queer or questioning individuals. The aim is to accelerate the careers and possibilities for qualified LGBTQ leaders by offering an exceptional learning environment and networking opportunities. We know there are a number of outstanding LGBTQ professionals and this is the only program of its kind in the State; its design speaks forcefully to the next generation of LGBTQ leaders who are highly motivated agents for change.” said Jose Vega, Program Director of Oklahomans for Equality.

“Leadership Tulsa is pleased to provide additional opportunities for leadership development in our community and we look forward to equipping LGBTQ leaders to build their influence, build a valuable network, and develop new models and mindsets for innovation using design thinking.” added Marcia-Bruno Todd, Leadership Tulsa Program Director. Participants will explore how their LGBTQ identity influences and strengthens their personal leadership style, while learning about LGBTQ history and the National Movement.

Lead with strength. Lead with impact. Our LGBTQ Leadership Program teaches you how to do both — authentically, effectively, and confidently. Over the course of four months, this six-session program will strengthen your influence, build a valuable network, develop new models and mindsets for innovation using design thinking and build a strong network of LGBTQ peers with whom you can share ideas and experiences.
