The Chamber is passionate about creating economic opportunity for all regional businesses and residents.

By developing key entrepreneurship opportunities, such as CEO Access Network, we create a vehicle for local minority, LGBTQ, and women entrepreneurs to connect with large business CEOs — thus bolstering Greater Philadelphia’s status as an inclusive world-class region.

Every year, the Chamber recruits and convenes the CEO Access Network, an informal group of large business CEOs and minority, LGBTQ, and women entrepreneurs who are committed to drive business and create economic opportunity for regional businesses and residents. Partners meet three times a year to share business development goals, networking opportunities, advice, and counsel.

We’re thrilled to welcome this year’s cohort of business leaders to such an illustrious group.
