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 a world class region. 
 

Through in-region programming and out-of-region learning visits, the Leadership Exchange exposes leaders to new insights and ideas, forges new connections across sectors and industries, and deepens participants’ understanding of Greater Philadelphia’s potential. Now in its 11th year, participants consistently give the experience top marks for exposure to new information and ideas, building connections, and strengthening a community of leaders who are shaping the region’s future.

 

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.

“As a business owner, I find many invitations to network, learn, and study ‘best practices.’ But, let’s face it … time is money, which makes time ‘away’ feel like a luxury that had better deliver some measurable ROI. For me, the Leadership Exchange does that in multiples. It’s why I keep it at the top of my annual list of experiences to plan for and schedule around.”
