SCLN offers four signature leadership fellowships, continued leadership development opportunities and special events to celebrate our state’s leadership.
Southern California Leadership Network envisions a more dynamic and prosperous region and state led by informed, collaborative, inspired, diverse and capable leaders. SCLN advances the region and the state by inspiring, preparing and connecting leaders to drive change.
A History of Inspiring Leadership
In 2006, the Leadership L.A. Foundation (founded in 1987) and the Southern California Leadership Network (founded in 1989) joined forces in a partnership with the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce. Programs merged under one umbrella nonprofit organization, the Southern California Leadership Network. SCLN established California Connections in 2010 and acquired the Riordan Leadership Institute in 2016.
