Taft Director of Public Affairs Clifton Williams has been invited to join the Leadership Ohio Class of 2023 as a Leadership Fellow.

The class of 2023, composed of 35 members, includes accomplished professionals from the private sector, government, and non-profit arenas.
Fellows will engage in a series of intensive sessions that cover topics such as the state judiciary, small town resurgence, and civil discourse while being exposed to an influential network of decision makers. Fellows will also develop Ohio Impact Projects taking direct action on a pressing issue or opportunity to benefit Ohio. Importantly, they will build impactful relationships with other leaders from around the state with goals for lasting change. To learn more about Leadership Ohio and the class of 2023, visit here.
