Leadership Cincinnati focuses on providing valued content, hands on experiences, and conversations with thought leaders from the Cincinnati community. Each session is designed to help participants gain a better understanding of key community topics and community interconnections and ways to further their engagement through their current roles.
A two-day camp retreat kicks off the class, allowing participants to come together and begin long-lasting relationships. The most valuable components of the program are often the relationships and connections formed.
Possible topics include:
Arts & Culture, Economic Development, Education, Health & Wellness, Human Services, Inclusion, Justice, Regionalism, Transportation
Established Leaders – C-Suite and Senior Executives
for Chamber Members
for Non-Members. Check Member Directory
