About Leadership Evansville

Welcome to LEADERSHIP EVANSVILLE, where it is our mission to develop effective leaders committed to utilizing inclusion and creativity for the betterment of the community.

The mission statement of Leadership Evansville has remained viable over a number of years due to the organization’s realization its meaning continues to change as we discover new ways to build and sustain our community into the future. Founded in 1976 by a group of future-thinking local leaders, LE’s original commitment to community-wide betterment remains unique and strong. Today, effective 21st Century Leadership Programs exist to strengthen and transform communities and to make communities “leader-full”.


LE continues to transform as we discover new ways to build and sustain communities.
