Benchmarking Greater Philadelphia's Livability: A Healthy & Livable Program

Wednesday, November 09, 2022
10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

The Chamber aspires to make the Greater Philadelphia region the healthiest and most livable community in the Northeast. This program will explore what makes a community healthy and livable and how our region stacks up to other major metropolitan areas.

Join us as Econsult Solutions shares the findings of their new Metropolitan Livability Index. This tool assesses ten key measures, including health, housing, and arts and culture in the metropolitan areas of Philadelphia, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Pittsburgh, and D.C. The presentation of their findings will be followed by a panel discussion about what we can learn from these indicators, our region's rank within, and what efforts are already underway by those working to enhance the livability of their communities. Be a part of the conversation that helps determine how the business community can lead the Greater Philadelphia region towards this aspirational future.

Thank you to the underwriters of the Metropolitan Livability Index: AARP, Ben Franklin Technology Partners, CVS, Harsco, IBX, Meyer Design, PIDC, and Visit Philly.

Speakers to Date:
Rebecca DeJoseph, Director, Econsult Solutions, Inc.
Steve Wilmot, Associate Vice President- Primary Care, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
Josh Maxwell, County Commissioner, Chester County
Anne Ishii, Executive Director, Asian Arts Initiative
Sylvie Gallier Howard, Founder & CEO, Equitable Cities Consulting
