For 30 years, Leadership Oklahoma has been dedicated to connecting passionate Oklahomans from across the state to form a living network of diverse individuals inspired to move Oklahoma forward.
Each year, Leadership Oklahoma brings together 50 of the state’s most outstanding leaders and educates them about issues that affect our state. The goal is to leverage the ingenuity and enthusiasm of these leaders to initiate positive change for the benefit of all Oklahomans. Participants are chosen by a rigorous application process and selected from across the state to represent Oklahoma’s professional, geographical and cultural diversity.
We encourage all Oklahomans to join us in serving our communities and affecting positive change in our state. It is our hope that this website and the posts on it will inspire the people of Oklahoma to find more ways to serve, build and lead our state.
