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

By developing key business opportunities such as CEO Access Network, we create a vehicle for small business owners from underrepresented populations (disability, LGBTQ, minority, veteran, and women) to connect with established executives from Chamber member companies. Forging these relationships bolsters Greater Philadelphia’s status as an inclusive world-class region.
