The most powerful civic organization in the Columbus region now has 80 members, with one organization that has yet to name a member.

Founder Les Wexner remains on the 10-member executive committee for the organization. Though he stepped down as CEO of L Brands, the retail company he founded in 1963, his commitment to advancing the Central Ohio community continues.

The Partnership works to guide economic development in the region, including in Downtown Columbus.

It's not a very diverse organization, with 18 women and three Black people out of the 80 business leaders who are members. But it has been working on diversity, equity and inclusion, both at members companies and within its ranks.

Among the members, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium's spot is open after Jack Hanna retired.
