The Global Interdependence Center (GIC) will present a 2012 Global Citizen Award to William Dunkelberg at its annual Celebration of Interdependence. The ceremony will take place on October 19.
Dunkelberg is the chairman of the GIC Board of Directors, professor emeritus of economics and former Dean of Temple University Fox School of Business, chief economics of the National Federation of Independent Business and an economic strategist at Boenning & Scattergood. As an internationally-recognized academic economist, he fostered the continuation of GIC’s reputation for serious dialogue and analysis of emerging issues in the global economy. His leadership skills have been important elements in building GIC’s expanded relationships with other organizations, corporations and individuals around the globe and creating in Philadelphia a premier center of excellence for the promotion of interdependence.
Since 2004, the GIC has periodically presented its Global Citizen Award to honor individuals who have provided substantial support to the organization and its mission. Recipients have demonstrated in business and personal lives a commitment to the principles set forth in the organization’s Declaration of Interdependence and have been strong advocates in GIC’s efforts to encourage the development of world-wide communities through increased knowledge, understanding and partnerships.
The Global Interdependence Center (GIC) is a Philadelphia-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote free trade and economic and political dialogue between countries to more effectively address our common problems and objectives. GIC convenes conferences and roundtable discussions both domestically and internationally to identify and address emerging global issues. For more information visit the GIC website.
