Leadership Pioneer Valley. Reach beyond.

 LPV's mission is to identify, develop, and connect diverse leaders to strengthen the Pioneer Valley. We were formed in 2010 to build a cadre of interconnected emerging and existing leaders to address the challenges and opportunities of the entire Pioneer Valley. 


The inaugural class launched in October of 2011 and each year a new class of roughly 30-40 participants begins in September and graduates the following June.   Our region's future depends on good leadership.  LPV is empowering leaders with the tools and connections they need to move us forward.  

If you'd like to learn more about how we can support  you or your organization through our signature 10 month leadership development program, please get in touch. We'd love to discuss how we can grow your success and strengthen your connection to leaders throughout the Pioneer Valley.

    We invite you to:
  • Connect with an LPV Alumni Ambassador to hear about their experience in our program. You can view our full alumni list here, or contact our staff to arrange an informal conversation with someone in your community or industry.
  • Schedule a briefing  at your workplace for those supporting talent development within your organization

Congratulations to the Class of 2017 that graduated on June 14, 2017.  Thank you to Class Speaker Julia Ortiz and Sen. Eric Lesser for inspiring and challenging us!  Check out photos here.
