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.

LPV's vision is for a vibrant Pioneer Valley with accessible, inclusive networks of inspired individuals who are leading and connecting the communities in which they live and work.  

If you'd like to learn more about how we can support you or your organization through our signature 9-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.
