About Us

The Frances Hesselbein Leadership Forum at the University of Pittsburgh is a continuation of the legacy of Frances Hesselbein and reflects the vision of a university-based center for teaching, applied research, and public service where leaders and aspiring leaders from around the world can gather to advance the art and science of leadership and put these principles to practice in public service.

The Hesselbein Forum fosters the development of values-based leadership: developing leaders of character and competence; providing dynamic global mentorship, training and service opportunities; and engaging, informing and enhancing the leadership journey of incoming generations of leaders

The Forum partners with national and global organizations to share management resources and cutting-edge thinking on leadership and strategy with emerging and existing leaders from the private, public and social sectors.
