Moving from Placemaking to Community Wealth Building: A Continuing Journey to Embrace DEI
Date & Time
Tuesday, May 3, 2022, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

We know our communities are being stretched in many new ways by the COVID-19 pandemic. Now is the right time to rethink all we do. Our focus on building community wealth is driven by successful communities that are growing, and in the process, are making their states more prosperous. As the COVID-19 threat is overcome, we will use our community wealth building focus to encourage innovations that will assist our communities large and small to grow, become stronger, and transform into even better places for their residents, businesses, and visitors. Taking a collaborative, human-centered design approach to defining and revising concepts requires multi-disciplinary collaboration by League, Foundation, Labs, and Legislative Affairs as well as members. Community Wealth Building is expected to help shape the focus of the League over the next decade, in a similar way that Placemaking has shaped the last 15 years During this session, we'll talk about the journey to Community Wealth Building started and how it's going.
