Various Locations (refer to the passport)
Philadelphia, PA
United States

Join the Economy League of Philadelphia in Philadelphia for 1 and 1/2 days of learning and networking with a cohort of emerging and established leaders from diverse sectors, industries, and counties. The first day features a welcome luncheon followed by Regional Explorations -- site visits to hubs of creative partnerships across the Delaware Valley. Return to Philadelphia for informal dinners at a selection of terrific Center City restaurants (optional). The program continues the second day with a mix of engaging speakers and panels plus interactive discussions.

Their program is focused on sharing stories of cooperation - some by choice, some by circumstance -- that are moving Greater Philadelphia forward in such priority matters as education and workforce, regional infrastructure, and business growth. They'll get behind each story to understand not just what's happening, but also how it keys into their region's future success:

  • Moving people and goods globally via Philadelphia International Airport: site visit to PHL and UPS cargo facilities
  • StartupPHL, LaunchPad, Goldman Sachs's 10,000 Small Businesses program - what changed to make Philadelphia a hotspot for entrepreneurs, and how can we support and retain these businesses?
  • Bright spots in education: we'll visit early learning and K-12 situations that are working and learn how to improve the talent development continuum
  • And much more.

The 2013 Greater Philadelphia Leadership Exchange offers a unique opportunity to expand your understanding of the region and some of the people, places, and organizations at the intersection of talent and transformation. Now in its 7th year, participants consistently rate the experience highly (at or above 4.5 of 5) for exposure to new information and ideas, building connections, and creating a community of people who can shape the region's future; 100% report the desire to apply for a future program.

Participation in the Leadership Exchange is a competitive process with a goal of representing the geographic, demographic, sector, and industry diversity in the region. To be eligible, applicants must live and/or work in the Greater Philadelphia region and serve in a leadership role in a business, nonprofit, or government organization.
