MAY 19, 2015 - 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM ET
This one-day conference will explore equitable economic development; that is, development that affords all individuals and communities the opportunity to realize the benefits of economic growth. Organized jointly by Community First Fund and the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia’s Community Development Studies and Education Department, the event will explore how goals to increase equity can be included in economic development planning and decision-making.
The conference is intended to increase understanding of equity-related issues and challenges and promote constructive, ongoing dialogue on equitable economic development in the central Pennsylvania region.
