  • Our Purpose

    Leadership DeKalb convenes and connects leaders, informs them on matters vital to the county, and enhances their leadership skills. This strengthened pipeline of talent immerses in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, thereby advancing quality of life in DeKalb. With focus on the entire county, we position current and emerging leaders – reflecting the area's rich diversity – to unite, commit, and act to make DeKalb a premier place to live, work and enjoy life. Class members learn about history, diversity, government, justice, arts and culture, education, health and economic development in the county. Classmates and alumni gain access to other leaders in all of these sectors. With over 1,000 alumni, we facilitate long-term leadership sustainability.
