Leadership Development

The Columbus Partnership invests in the Columbus Region’s future by cultivating our next generation of leaders.


The Columbus Partnership supports two organizations that develop the leaders of tomorrow.

Young Presidents Organization

The Columbus Partnership and the Young Presidents Organization (YPO) Columbus Chapter work together to co-host leadership programming, including roundtable discussions with local business leaders and special events with guest keynotes.

Young American Leaders Program at Harvard Business School

Each year, the Columbus Partnership and the Columbus Foundation send 10 young, high-impact leaders from Columbus to the Young American Leaders Program at the Harvard Business School. The program includes coursework on the economy, cross-sector collaboration and leadership.
