Improving perspectives of their city

“[LG] really changed my assessment of Greensboro civic and community leadership. I recently returned to the area after being away for decades – I grew up here. My perception of GSO was still stuck in the past, and Leadership Greensboro helped me to see it in a new light and appreciate the progress that has been made.”
