Economy League: Director, Greater Philadelphia Leadership Exchange, Apply by Dec. 13

Posted by Economy League of Greater Philadelphia on November 26, 2019

The Economy League of Greater Philadelphia is seeking a detail-oriented, entrepreneurial professional to run its signature program, the Greater Philadelphia Leadership Exchange (GPLEX).  The GPLEX Director is responsible for the portfolio of GPLEX initiatives and programs, including but not limited to producing the annual GPLEX convening, developing and executing an ongoing series of programming targeted at GPLEX alums called GPLEX365, and building cohort identity through the development of the GPLEX alumni network.

About the program

Since 2005, the Economy League has created an exemplary experience for 100-250 cross-sector leaders annually, through in-region programming and out-of-region learning visits.  GPLEX engages a diverse group of participants in explorations that lead to new insights and ideas, helps them forge new connections across sectors and industries, deepens their understanding of Greater Philadelphia’s potential, and helps to build “civic muscle.”  Through GPLEX the Economy League has taken participants to Chicago, San Francisco, Toronto, Atlanta, Boston, Los Angeles, and Seattle, and in 2020 will take 150 leaders to Detroit.  In odd-numbered years the Economy League convenes more than 200 cross-sector leaders to take a deep dive into the regional economy.  The core of GPLEX is a series of field trips (aka “regional explorations”) that expose participants to cutting edge innovations in a variety of domains including business, technology, healthcare, creative place-making, and others.  Under the Economy League’s Strategic Plan, GPLEX will expand to include more regular programming in addition to the annual leadership convening.
