Achieving Equity in Our Communities Through Economic Development

10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

In many cities, economic advancement is uneven. Economic mobility, income inequality, and racial inequity remain challenges—not only as deeply concerning social problems, but also as economic problems. The NLC Equitable Economic Development (EED) Fellowship helps cities pursue economic development strategies that create more equitable access to opportunities for all residents. EED Fellows will share lessons they have learned, and will empower you to start looking at economic development in your own community through an equity lens.
