Every other year, the Greater Philadelphia Leadership Exchange takes flight to explore new regions and new ideas. This summer, the Exchange will make its first ever international visit to Toronto, one of North America's most international cities and the heart of an area similar to Greater Philadelphia in size, complexity, and tendency. Applications will be accepted online through March 15, 2012. To be eligible to apply, you must live and/or work in the Greater Philadelphia region (which includes counties in southern New Jersey and New Castle County in northern Delaware) and serve in a leadership role in a business, civic, or government organization.

Through a program of knowledgeable and engaging speakers and panelists as well as site visits, Exchange participants will explore the evolution of Toronto as an international center and global hotspot. Participants will meet those working to maximize Toronto's assets and make sure that as global competition increases, it remains a world class place to live and to visit.

Past participants say that after program content, the great value of the Leadership Exchange is having the opportunity to connect with fellow Philadelphians from a range of sectors, industries, generations, and ethnicities. When you return home with an iPad or notepad full of ideas, you'll have a new cohort of partners to work with.

The Greater Philadelphia Leadership Exchange is an initiative of the Economy League to develop leaders of business, civic, and government organizations into visionaries dedicated to making Greater Philadelphia aworld class region. Through in-region programming and out-of-region learning visits, the Leadership Exchange exposes leaders to best practices, forges new connections across sectors and industries, and deepens participants’ understanding of Greater Philadelphia’s potential.
