LGW and its affiliated leadership organizations partner for an expansive session focusing on redefining the region for the future.

Join Leadership Greater Washington and our regional partners for the third annual Future of Greater Washington. Together with some of the top thinkers from the Stephen S. Fuller Institue, Greater Washington Board of Trade, Greater Washington Partnership, JBG SMITH, United Way of the National Capital Area, and Accenture, participants will learn from and engage with area leaders on how to best adapt to a renewed-positioning effort; one that defines the region as an enviable place to live, a great place to do business and a powerful source for spurring innovation in the world. During this one-stop-shop event on reshaping the region’s future, participants will explore the challenges and opportunities that exist for us as we catapult this region into a new age of global competitiveness, unique identity, and prosperity for all who reside here.
