About the Program


Southern California is perhaps the most complex region in the nation, with a highly diverse population, vast socio-economic disparities and some of the world’s most enviable assets.

Leadership Southern California (LSC) provides both virtual classroom and experiential learning, giving fellows exposure to the systems, trends and issues shaping Southern California, with a focus on solutions to some of the region’s most pressing challenges. LSC fellows build unparalleled relationships – and partnerships – to help them succeed both in their work and in their community engagement. In addition, fellows develop and hone the skills they need to effectively lead collaboration and build strategic partnerships across sectors with diverse stakeholders. The program takes fellows to 5 counties in Southern California - Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura - giving the opportunity to explore unique organizations and collaborative efforts across the region.

“The seminar speakers, the excursions, the 360-evaluation and the relationships built with cohorts have added so much value to my professional transition. Having been in one industry for so long, I had not realized that my perspective had become narrow. Thanks to the SCLN program, my regional perspective and issue awareness is much broader now than it was going in."
