CATALYZING A THRIVING, 21ST-CENTURY PHILADELPHIA

In the 21st-century, cities around the world face unprecedented challenges and opportunities - from equity to climate action, food access to technology disruption. In response, leaders are mobilizing forward-thinking, cross-sector ecosystems to successfully adapt, navigate, and thrive in this new era. 

Locally, Philadelphia's impact ecosystem is gaining momentum. A growing number of leaders are leveraging resources - from capital to business, policy to storytelling - in new and innovative ways. These leaders are catalyzing the positive impact we need today to design the Philadelphia of our future. 

A NEW KIND OF LEADERSHIP 

“Cities must grow new sets of leaders...to align with this disruptive era and its heightened importance.”

Initiatives

How do we collaborate across silos to advance our collective impact? In 2018, we'll prototype five initiatives to convene stakeholders, including: Philadelphia impact pledge, early-stage ventures, place-based investing, established enterprises, and a positioning plan for Philadelphia's impact leadership.
