Leadership Fort Worth (LFW) was established in 1972 as a resource for community leadership succession planning, with the first Leadership Class graduating in 1973. The founding organizations were the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce, Fort Worth Junior League, Texas Christian University, Texas Wesleyan University, and the University of Texas at Arlington. Texas Electric, now Oncor, provided needed in-kind support. LFW graduates total more than 4,000 and are leaders not only in government but a wide variety of volunteer and appointed roles. LFW is among the oldest community leadership development organizations in the country and consists of five programs: Leader Prime, Leadership Class, Leading Edge, Leader Kids, and Leadership Forum. LFW is a proud member of the Association of Leadership Programs (ALP) and was recognized with its Excellence in Innovation award in 2015. It’s an exciting time to join LFW under the leadership of its new Executive Director, Jennifer Treviño who became LFW’s third Executive Director in January 2021.
