GPLEX 2021 IS HERE!
On the heels of an unprecedented year, in October 2021 the Greater Philadelphia Leadership Exchange will bring together a diverse group of Philadelphia' s brightest and most engaged business and civic leaders to examine how cross-sector collaboration can help center equity and inclusion as our region emerges from the pandemic.
This year's GPLEX will include both virtual and in-person programming, as we continue to keep everyone’s comfort and safety as a top priority. The program will take place from Monday, October 25 to Wednesday, October 27 at the beautiful College of Physicians in Center City. While we are excited to offer in-person gathering options for this year's events, we plan to remain vigilant and informed on any changes to the COVID-19 virus and its variants. With the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and the Pennsylvania & Philadelphia Departments of Public Health, we will be asking all GPLEX participants to abide by a list of safety requirements that will be shared in advance of the event.
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.
Leadership Exchange registration fees are $975 this year with an option to join the Dine-Arounds for an additional $100.
The GPLEX 2021 application is live through Friday, August 13. Completing the application will take around 15 minutes.
