Leadership Philadelphia is a 50-year-old nonprofit charged with finding, training and elevating tomorrow’s leaders.
The group’s executive director Liz Dow has launched the Connectors project, hoping to highlight the trusted, lesser known leaders of the region. Now, in a partnership with WHYY, Leadership and Dow are seeking out Creative Connectors. Ought not the technology community play a role in such a list? The deadline for nominations is this Friday, July 1.
The nominee can be active in art, music, theater, design, writing, cooking, digital media or any other creative endeavor.
Listen to Dow speak about the project with WHYY’s Dave Heller on NewsWorks Tonight.-30-
