Since 1986, Leadership Greater Washington (LGW) has developed over 1,800 executive leaders from DC, Northern Virginia, and Suburban Maryland, through its flagship offering, the Signature Program — an intensive 10-month program that exposes professionals to regional civic issues through education, connection, and knowledge sharing.

The Signature Program provides an opportunity for Greater Washington’s most influential change-makers and leaders to come together around community issues with a dynamic group of their peers, identify challenges in the region, drive dialogue and build the connections that facilitate solutions. Each year, approximately 60 leaders are competitively selected to represent the professional and individual diversity of the Greater Washington region as the LGW Signature Class. The Signature Program sheds light on a variety of regional challenges to reflect the current needs of Greater Washington. Signature Program participants hail from diverse professional sectors throughout the region including nonprofit, corporate, government, and small and large business owners.

Through the Signature Program, participants will:
• Gain access to LGW’s membership base of over 1,800 regional decision makers
• Build a network of diverse executive peers from all sectors and a variety
of industries
• Leverage collective resources to make the Greater Washington region a more
dynamic and collaborative community.
