One Membership - A World of Opportunities!
The Global Interdependence Center seeks to stimulate thoughtful, global dialogue on a wide range of issues that affect the international community. Our mission is to encourage the expansion of global dialogue and free trade in order to improve cooperation and understanding among nations, with the goal of reducing international conflicts and improving worldwide living standards.
Members receive discounted registration to all of our domestic and international programs. These programs provide a neutral forum for business professionals and scholars to identify and discuss emerging economic, social and political issues vital to the interdependent global community. Most programs include networking opportunities with distinguished speakers and peers.
GIC’s programs around the world are particularly tailored to promote face-to-face dialogue with leaders in monetary, political and social policy throughout the globe. Past conferences have convened in Abu Dhabi, Rome, Santiago, Prague, Paris, Shanghai, Ireland, Zambia, Israel, Estonia, Hanoi, Tokyo and more.
Intimate roundtable discussions have become a hallmark of GIC programming and allow for candid exchanges. These sessions have been known to give attendees insight on pressing world issues, not available for public consumption. Past topics have included the BP oil spill, water crises in Africa and global economic instability.
GIC members have the opportunity to attend our partners’ events at their membership rate. Our partners include Philadelphia Council for Business Economics and CFA Society of Philadelphia.
