To build and inspire a network of engaged and collaborative leaders who move the region forward
WHO WE ARE
Leadership MetroWest is a respected and established nonprofit community leadership development organization serving the MetroWest region for 30 years. Our goal is to encourage and empower the participants and alumni of our signature program, the “MetroWest Leadership Academy,” to be more informed, effective and engaged community and business leaders.
By providing first-rate experiential Academy programs and powerful connections through the Alumni Association, and presenting events on timely topics for leaders in the community, we continue our long tradition of building effective leadership and promoting civic engagement and collaboration in MetroWest.
The Leadership Academy was founded in 1986 as a program of the MetroWest Chamber of Commerce and graduated its first class in 1987. The program was incorporated as an independent nonprofit 501(c)(3), Leadership MetroWest, in 1994. The organization is led by a Board of Directors and staffed by an Executive Director.
WHAT WE DO
Our flagship program, the yearly “MetroWest Leadership Academy,” brings together 30 experienced and emerging leaders from every sector to explore issues, institutions, resources, and opportunities in the region. Leadership Academy fellows engage together in monthly site visits and discussions with local and state leaders and experts. They experience diverse schools of thought and team-building, and are empowered with a new understanding of their own personal leadership capacity.
Graduates become a part of our Alumni Association – a unique and influential resource network of more than 750 “uncommon leaders serving the common good.”
