What is Leadership Memphis
Over thirty years ago, Memphis needed leadership to help guide the process of recovery from years of turmoil. In 1979, a courageous group of 42 community leaders gathered together to examine challenges within the Memphis community and gather different perspectives on each challenge and to maintain understanding and respect for the view-points of others. Those 42 courageous individuals headed up the first Leadership Memphis class.
Since 1979, Leadership Memphis has continually developed new and innovative ways to connect and create more community leaders. Leadership Memphis has made an imprint on the city by graduating more than 2,000 people from its Executive Program and expanded its reach through programs for grassroots and high-potential leaders.
As Leadership Memphis moves forward, there is an increased urgency to bring together all generations of leaders.
