Leadership Council

Today's global challenges require novel approaches and non-traditional alliances that bring together leaders from government, civil society, and business.

Founded in 2013 and co-chaired by Les and Abigail Wexner, the Leadership Council is a network of business, philanthropic, and civic innovators committed to our mission of developing principled, effective public leaders. Leadership Council members contribute to the life of the center through vital financial support and advice grounded in their experience as leaders across sectors. Membership is accompanied by an annual contribution.
