Our History

The Center for Leadership Excellence

Only THREE Indiana companies rank in the top 100 of “best places for women to work” (based on the top three national recognition programs). 

At The Center for Leadership Excellence we’re driven to make Indianapolis and your organization a best place for women to work.  We strategically partner with our clients to transform systems, infrastructure, and culture to establish their organization as a best place for women to work.

Originally founded as Career Consultants, The Center for Leadership Excellence was established in 1963.  We are the oldest and most trusted Human Resource Consulting Firm in Indiana. We are not only the consulting firm of choice for human resource professionals, business leaders and executives, we are also trusted advisors to employment and labor attorneys who assist their clients in skillfully managing an organization’s human resources.

In 2018, we shifted our focus from traditional HR consulting, toward making Indy a great place for women to work after seeing a need to not only help women in Indiana advance, but work with organizations to shift their culture to better, more inclusive and respectful place for women to work.
