About Leadership Kansas

Leadership Kansas is one of the oldest and most prestigious statewide leadership programs in the country. Established at the encouragement of  former Governor of Kansas Robert Bennett, and supported and administered by the Kansas Chamber, the program is entering its fifth decade of educating and motivating Kansas leaders from all four corners of the state.

Our Mission

  • Annually identifying leaders from across Kansas;
  • Informing those leaders about key state issues;
  • Inspiring those leaders to maintain involvement in the social, business and political fabric of Kansas communities; and
  • Maintaining a cohesive, relevant Leadership Kansas alumni network.
