Leadership Tomorrow Now Accepting Applications

We are now accepting applications for the LT Class of 2024, which will run from September 2023-June 2024.  

During our 10-month Flagship Program, participants explore the interconnected issues that shape our region, develop and practice strategies and tools to become more effective leaders, and expand their personal and professional networks. The program, which unites leaders of all ages across industries, deepens participants’ understanding of the history and current impacts of racism in our region and provides opportunities to work individually and collectively to advance racial equity in Puget Sound.  

Each LT class is comprised of up to 80 community leaders from the private, nonprofit, and public sectors who represent the diversity of our region in race, gender, profession, and geographic location.  

I’m reaching out because I hope you’ll help identify leaders who would be interested in participating in LT. You can nominate potential candidates HERE or you can email

Applications for LT’24 are due April 3, 2023, before 5:00 p.m. so please send your nominations as soon as possible.
