“In today’s world, it’s critical that we have leaders who are knowledgeable of our history and who understand the complexity of the challenges we face as a community. And despite our best intentions, we are often socially segregated as we go through our professional and personal lives,” said Cynthia Knapek, president of Leadership Louisville Center. “The 57 members of the 2022 Leadership Louisville class embarked on a life- and community-changing journey that has prepared them for meaningful impact on our region’s growth and success. We’re excited to see how this new understanding and connections will enable them the organizations they represent to impact the greater good.”
