2023 Internet2 Community Exchange | May 8, 2023 | Atlanta, Ga.

Leadership Exchange

What is the Leadership Exchange?

Formerly known as the Executive Track, the Leadership Exchange is a gathering of R&E leaders within the overall Community Exchange event.  

This invitation-only gathering offered a selection of topics and speakers tailored to the interests and issues of R&E executive leaders within the framework of Community Exchange.

The Leadership Exchange was held in the Savannah Ballroom located on the 10th floor at the Westin Peachtree Plaza. The program featured an opening panel presentation on the topic of Artificial Intelligence as well as discussions regarding the Internet2 five-year roadmap. 

In preparation for the five-year roadmap discussions, all attendees were encouraged to spend 15-30 minutes reviewing the overview materials which include two summary narrative documents and a presentation from our town hall sessions. Thank you for reviewing the materials.
