Public and private sector organizations, anchor institutions like community colleges and universities, and philanthropy all play a vital role in strengthening local economies. Together, they can serve as powerful drivers for building inclusive and equitable communities. Leadership and action are critical to creating new pathways to prosperity. By examining inherited economic issues (like historical inequities) and present-day factors impacting local economies, such as access to capital and resources in an accelerated tech-based innovation economy, organizations can help create the situations in which equity and innovation can occur. This Leadership in Action will highlight thought leaders who are working on a broad range of solution-oriented ideas, with insights and promising practices that are aimed at the development of inclusive economic innovation ecosystems.
