Who We Are

In 1986, a group of Oklahoma leaders began a series of discussions based on the belief that positive change cannot happen without effective leadership.  They also shared the conviction that our leadership must understand the complex differences and relationships driving Oklahoma and search for the common ties that will inspire us to change and grow.  Leadership Oklahoma was created to build a statewide leadership development program designed to identify, teach and challenge the leaders of our state.

In 1987, Leadership Oklahoma was incorporated and is designated a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization by the Internal Revenue Service.Leadership Oklahoma is governed by a board of directors that represents all regions of the state and is funded primarily by membership fees and private donations from individuals, companies, and foundations.
