About Leadership Buffalo

Service, Diversity, Inclusion, Openness to Change

Leadership Buffalo (LB) was founded on the idea of equality. Our mission is to make Buffalo better. We unite leaders from diverse backgrounds and increase their knowledge of community issues, broaden their vision and enhance their ability to lead.

Leadership Buffalo has expanded Western New York's social capital by graduating more than 2,500 individuals from a variety of our programs.

Participants explore the challenges, concepts, complexity and practice of leadership around important issues through a series of day sessions.

We continue to strive to bring positive change to WNY.
