About Leadership Triangle:
Leadership Triangle is a non-profit organization established in 1992 to educate and promote regionalism across the separate communities of the Triangle. It does this through regional and leadership development classes, seminars and awards. They strive to build leadership capacity, cooperation, and networking opportunities across the public, private and civic sector, preserving local uniqueness while acting regionally to deal with issues such as traffic congestion, water quality, housing affordability, open space, school funding, economic and social equity. Since 1992 Leadership Triangle has brought together emerging leaders from all corners of the Triangle, building bridges across Wake, Chatham, Durham and Orange communities and across business, government, nonprofit, academic, and grassroots leadership. They connect current and emerging community leaders, honoring differences, yet finding common ground on which to address regional issues and also reflect the population of the Triangle in our participants, volunteers, and outreach, and bring an inclusive practice to leadership development. With underwriting from Fidelity Investments in 2009, Leadership Triangle launched Leadership Triangle College Edition, offering its tested regional leadership program to college juniors.
