Who will be selected?

The Leadership Exchange focuses on cross-sector leaders in order to build our cohort: we consider a leader (or future leader) anyone who is at the center of a ripple effect. If you are a mover/shaker, community leader, visionary or thought leader in your field, an expert networker, a traditional company head, or are leading innovation in your area of interest, you likely meet our requirement as a leader. 


Do you know someone who might be a candidate? Pass it on! This is a great opportunity to get a taste of the well-loved yearly Leadership Exchange (GPLEX) at a more accessible entry point. At a lower cost and smaller time commitment than our traditional conference, this could be the bite-sized GPLEX you've been waiting for.
