Priority application status has ended. Applications received after May 30th may be placed on a waiting list.
Since 1990, the Leadership Oakland Cornerstone Program has brought together nearly 1,000 leaders from corporate, civic and non-profit organizations throughout the community. Each year, as part of the 9-month program, 50 developing leaders delve into the important issues facing the region.
"Leadership Oakland is a bridge builder in our region. By connecting participants and alumni members to key resources throughout Southeast Michigan, and through the events and activities this organization sponsors, our region has leaders who are focused on collaboration as a way to build economic strength. Additionally, participation in the program prepares individuals to question the status quo and, importantly, to step up to the opportunity of contributing to solutions to our region's toughest challenges. I recommend this program to anyone that cares about leadership in a way that contributes to something even greater than the 'bottom line'." - Michelle Hodges, LOVI, President, Troy Chamber of Commerce.
