Why I Give

“Leadership Charlotte is a profound organization that provides people from diverse backgrounds with unique opportunities to build relationships and forge mutual bonds of leadership with like-minded individuals. For me, Leadership Charlotte was the second best decision I made. (The best was to relocate here from Detroit, Michigan.) The organization offered me the space and resources to build immediate connections that have sustained me for over 4 years. Through my association with Leadership Charlotte, I have been exposed, directly and indirectly, to people, communities, and institutions that have allowed me to increase my business and social capital through networking, mentorships, and partnerships, some of which have blossomed into lifelong friendships. I am forever grateful to Leadership Charlotte.”
