Leadership Miami®

If there is a program that has helped shape the future leadership of our community, Leadership Miami® would be it. The volume of individuals who over the program’s four decades have impacted South Florida is nothing short of staggering. Leadership Miami® is a definitive pipeline to leadership and an almost sure path to career success.  Leadership Miami® is designed to prepare the next generation of South Florida leaders. It offers participants the opportunity to share an intensive learning experience focused on community issues and leadership skills developed with local universities. The program’s dynamic format stimulates animated and critical discussions among participants and guest speakers.

To prepare Miami’s future leaders to succeed in their professional spaces, by cultivating civic engagement, learning to identify and address vital issues affecting Miami-Dade County now and in the future, and establishing a long-lasting network of professional relationships to ensure future collaborations among leaders in Miami-Dade and beyond.   


  • Ensure that the next generation professionals are well-prepared to handle the issues they will face and feel a sense of empowerment through access to community leaders and programs they have established
  • Ensure that participants have a first-hand understanding of community issues and challenges, and facilitate opportunities to help them be part of solutions
