About

A Legacy of Leadership

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). Our work centers around a mission 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.
