PHL Diversity

Why Choose Philadelphia: Embracing Diversity

Philadelphia has always enjoyed a reputation as a city overflowing with history and culture. In addition to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, visitors and locals alike experience our rich, diverse history that underlines the very fabric that helped build Philadelphia.

Come explore our dynamic neighborhoods and attractions, world-renowned restaurants and eclectic shopping (clothing and shoe purchases are tax-free!). From one of the country’s oldest and largest “Gayborhoods” to thriving African American, Latino, Native American and Asian communities, our city is open and welcoming to visitors of all backgrounds and cultures.

Best of all, Philadelphia’s compact downtown places all of this and so much more within a short walk or cab ride from the Pennsylvania Convention Center and any downtown hotel.


We are thrilled to launch our sixth season of PHL Diversity Podcast with Alissa Carpenter, a multi-generational workforce expert, author, speaker and training facilitator. Alissa is the owner of Everything’s Not Ok and That’s Ok, where she provides training, consulting, and speaking services to organizations all over the world. Alissa is also the author of “How to Listen and How to Be Heard: Inclusive Conversations at Work”.

She works to help bridge communication gaps across generations, job functions, and geographies, and she has worked with organizations ranging from non-profits to multi-billion-dollar enterprises. She has been featured in multiple media outlets including Forbes, ABC, FOX, NPR and CBS.

Alissa joined Greg DeShields for a in depth conversation about working from home, being heard and the importance of an inclusive workforce.
