    I truly believe that LGW is the best professional networking organization in the Washington metropolitan region. With strong leadership, an engaged board, amazingly dedicated staff, and alumni made of the region’s most prominent leaders, we are committed to making the Washington region a more dynamic and collaborative community as we embrace and value the diversity – geography, people, sectors, and professions – of our region.

    Co-Founder, COO & Executive Creative Director, Sage Communications
    I have yet to be part of anything in my life where it is not true that you get out of it what you put into it. So, when I had the opportunity to be a lifetime member of LGW, I jumped at it. I believe not just in the leadership at LGW but in the people I met in my class and the power of their potential to create needed change in this region.

    For me, the Leadership Greater Washington experience is utterly transformative, which I believe to be due, in no small part, to the experience of intimate collaboration with other successful professionals, creating an environment of accountability and healthy encouragement to be the best we could be, both in our careers and our personal lives for the advancement of our region.
    — Vennard Wright ('19)

    Leadership Greater Washington is a tremendous organization that lives up to its mission of connecting diverse leaders and stimulating their collaborative efforts through dynamic education, membership programs and events. This yields a highly inspired membership that strives to strengthen the region.
