The Gay & Lesbian Leadership Institute was founded in 1993, and has been granted 501(c)3 status by the Internal Revenue Service. It works to ensure that LGBT Americans are not excluded from the electoral process and does this work by offering through its Leadership Institute Candidate & Campaign Training program nonpartisan trainings on the ins and outs of campaigns. In addition, it works to help openly gay and lesbian officeholders develop professionally through its collaboration with the International Network of Lesbian and Gay Officials and co-sponsorship of the annual Gay & Lesbian Leadership Conference. It also sponsors the Leadership Institute Fellowship program, which offers full and partial scholarships to the Executive Programs at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.
