    For 15 years, GPLEX has served the vital function of convening cross-sector leaders to learn, grow, and connect with one another with the aim of informing collaborative and inclusive growth in the Philadelphia region. The mission of GPLEX 2020 will be no different than those of the past but, due to the impact of COVID-19 on our region and its communities, the format of the 2020 convening will change. In response to the ongoing crisis, we have pivoted from the planned Detroit 2020 GPLEX event to focus, instead, on Philadelphia, and the region's recovery from the economic, social, and civic challenges ahead.


    Participants are selected through a competitive process with a goal of representing the geographic, demographic, sector, and industry diversity of the region. To be eligible, applicants must live or work in the Greater Philadelphia region and serve in a leadership role in a business, nonprofit, or government organization.
