COLUMBUS, Ohio - April 19, 2019 - PRLog -- A Doctor of Medicine and former asylum seeker who helps New Americans become successful citizens. A high-tech entrepreneur who built and sold his first company inside of one year. The manager of the Air Force employee assistance program responsible for overseeing support for 170,000 civilians and their family members worldwide. A Police Officer turned MBA, Ed.D., and school principal.

These are just a few of Leadership Ohio's newest class members — 23 leaders in all from seven Ohio cities. Today, we're officially announcing the 2019 cohort of Leaders.

"We're excited by the immense talent and breadth of experience reflected in this year's Leaders," notes Leadership Ohio Executive Director, Dr. Lisa Duty. "Together we're advancing a unifying movement of diverse, connected leaders who are deeply committed to making Ohio the best state to live and work."

For the class of 2019, leaders hail from both public and private institutions, nearly one third are minorities, and more than half are women. Leadership Ohio comprises scholars, intellectual leaders, activists and influencers from some of Ohio's leading organizations.

Over the course of the year, these Leaders will examine key issues and persistent challenges, forge new ground, and inspire community. In past cohorts, Leaders have gone on to assume elected office, launch new initiatives and organizations, champion vital issues and serve on key boards and commissions.

Leaders will begin their journey through Leadership Ohio April 26-27 in Marysville, Ohio. The leaders will examine artificial intelligence through the lens of smart mobility and economics and the role of innovation and the arts in restoring citizenship. Union County Community Improvement Corporation, DriveOhio, Honda of North America, the Ohio Reformatory for Women and more will support leaders' examination of these issues as they begin their year-long trek.

More than ever, Ohio's capacity for reinvention must be driven by talent from every corner of the state. Leadership Ohio serves to fuel leaders' inspiration and opportunities to connect with their unique abilities and with each other to address our greatest challenges-- and build new opportunities in their wake.
