LEDA empowers a community of exceptional young leaders from under-resourced backgrounds by supporting their higher education and professional success in order to create a more inclusive and equitable country.

LEDA runs the LEDA Scholars Program, the LEDA Career Network, and the LEDA Policy Project.
