GPEC President and CEO to speak at 2014 Arizona Leadership Forum
September 12, 2014

GPEC President and CEO Barry Broome will be part of an expert panel at the annual Arizona Leadership Forum on September 19, 2014 in Phoenix. Broome will be speaking on a panel about the benefits of a successful public-private partnership. The panel will use the Translational Genomics Research Institute (T-Gen) as a case study of the powerful results that can be achieved when the public and private sector work together. A full agenda of the forum can be found here.

The Arizona Leadership Initiative started in 2011 and strives to empower and position the non-profit sector as a leader in economic development, positive social change and enhancing the quality of life for all Arizonans. Working with the Arizona We Want and the Center for the Future of Arizona, the initiative has developed eight Citizen Goals that will help positively shape Arizona’s future. Top priorities include education, job creation and retaining young talent in Arizona. The Leadership forum provides a place where committed leaders from the non-profit, for-profit and government sectors can collaboratively work to make Arizona a better place to live.
