Leadership Indianapolis was formed in 2013 by two of central Indiana’s most prominent community leadership groups: the Stanley K. Lacy Executive Leadership Series® (SKL) and Lacy Leadership Association (LLA).

Leadership Indianapolis works to educate, inspire, connect, and mobilize community leaders to serve and strengthen greater Indianapolis. We believe that community leadership is at its best when it is multi-generation, multi-cultural, and collaborative.

Leadership Indianapolis convenes people with diverse points of view and lived experience in an environment that encourages authentic conversation and builds connections, thus assuring a diverse and robust pipeline of individuals is prepared for increasing levels of civic engagement and transformative influence.
