The Arts + Business Council for Greater Philadelphia is committed to developing leaders in the creative economy, including for-profit creative and nonprofit arts and culture communities. Now in its sixth year, Designing Leadership is a five-session program, taught by expert faculty from IBM and the Wharton School, focusing on individual and organizational leadership competencies. Participants benefit from world-class faculty and the shared experience of collaborating with their creative peers on real-time challenges.
