What is Leadership Tennessee?

Leadership Tennessee is the only statewide leadership education program in the state, cultivating a network of business, nonprofit, education and government leaders who are committed to addressing the state's challenges and opportunities.

Citizens with demonstrated community and professional leadership from every region of the state bring their diverse backgrounds and experiences to an in-depth exploration of the complex issues facing Tennessee, with a focus on how leaders can collaborate to effectively address them.

Leadership Tennessee is an initiative of the Nelson and Sue Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership.

It will provide:

  • Collaborative learning and dialogue spanning the state's three grand divisions;
  • Issue specific education for demonstrated leaders;
  • Diverse representation of participants;
  • Opportunities to affect change.
