"The health and success of a community can be
measured by the quality of its leadership."
LMW is a respected community leadership development nonprofit organization serving the region and recognizing more than 32 years of impact by our 800+ alumni of the signature program, the Leadership Academy.
Our goal is to encourage and empower Academy participants and alumni to be more effective community and business leaders and to embrace civic engagement and cross-sector collaboration.
Our mission is to build and inspire a network of engaged and collaborative leaders who move the region forward.
Good ideas and intentions don’t reach their full potential in the absence of effective leaders who have the skills, knowledge and networks that move ideas to action and then, to results.Leadership MetroWest serves the public, private and nonprofit sectors in Framingham, Natick, Ashland, Hopkinton, Holliston, Marlborough, Sherborn, Southborough, Sudbury, and Wayland.
Making a difference for racial and social justice will take commitment, action and leadership, not just words, by individuals and institutions. LMW will move from just talking about diversity and inclusion to embracing strategies that dismantle inequities in the communities we serve. We will do the hard work and have the difficult conversations, with humility. Please read our message to see our action plan and resource list.
