Since 1994, we have created transformative leadership experiences that develop leaders that best serve Ohio. Our diverse alumni span across all regions of Ohio and represent Ohio’s many industries and professions.


Our Mission

We create transformative statewide leadership development experiences to influence leaders to best serve their family, community, workplace and the state of Ohio.

Leadership Ohio was a great experience for me and the value was much higher than the time and expense. I met and learned with many great people and have relationships that continue 10+ years later. Learning is a never ending process and everyone is a leader. Leadership Ohio fills a niche for Ohio leaders that is both unique and lasting. It will serve you well.
— Jon Williams – AEP Ohio Director of Distribution Technology and Innovation.
