Every year, Global Philadelphia Association's Globy Awards recognize globally-active leaders who have distinguished themselves through the extraordinary work they have done in Greater Philadelphia (click here to see 2015 and 2016 awardees).

Join us on December 11 for a membership meeting, a luncheon, and an award ceremony. As a bonus, there will be a panel discussion, moderated by World Affairs Council President Craig Snyder debating the role of cities in general – and Philadelphia in particular – in the development of international relationships. Speakers: Harold Epps, Philadelphia's Director of Commerce and Sanjoy Chakravorty, Professor of Geography and Urban Studies at Temple University.
