LOUISVILLE, Ky. — After 10 months, 57 regional leaders graduated May 17 as the Leadership Louisville Class of 2022, the 43rd class of the Leadership Louisville Center’s signature program for established community leaders.
Since 1979, Leadership Louisville has helped the community’s most influential and esteemed leaders are knowledgeable about issues, well-networked and passionate about the success of the region. They spent one year going on exclusive tours and having hands-on experiences, all with area leaders who take on our community’s biggest challenges every day. Armed with new knowledge, connections and perspectives, Leadership Louisville graduates are prepared to take their places as effective community leaders.
“In today’s world, it’s critical that we have leaders who are knowledgeable of our history and who understand the complexity of the challenges we face as a community. And despite our best intentions, we are often socially segregated as we go through our professional and personal lives,” said Cynthia Knapek, president of Leadership Louisville Center. “The 57 members of the 2022 Leadership Louisville class embarked on a life- and community-changing journey that has prepared them for meaningful impact on our region’s growth and success.”
