Engaging Residents and Small Businesses in Equitable Economic Development
Small businesses are the backbone of many communities, providing jobs, a sense of place and character, but the pandemic took a toll on many of them. As local government officials consider how to infuse equity into their economic development futures, helping their small businesses thrive will be a key component.
In this webinar, three government practitioners describe how they are implementing incremental, human-scale steps toward transforming their community’s economic outlook.
Featured speakers: Mayor Jamael Tito Brown, Youngstown, Ohio; Natalia Urtubey, director of small business for the city of Boston; Diann Rogers, president of the Rancho Cordova (Calif.) Chamber of Commerce.
This webinar was produced in partnership with Colu.
