Encouraging Small-Scale Manufacturing in Brownfield-Affected Communities
Weds., July 26, 2017
Small-scale manufacturing is beginning to flourish in communities across the country, but there are many challenges to ensuring that emerging entrepreneurs of color or from immigrant communities can equitably participate in this manufacturing resurgence.
How do you kick start small-scale manufacturing efforts in your city? How can municipalities support a diverse and inclusive group of business owners in creating local jobs and recruiting workers from marginalized communities? In Part 1 of a two-part webinar series for municipal leaders and community and economic development practitioners, Ilana Preuss of Recast City
will share insights from her work to advance small-scale manufacturing in former industrial and brownfield-affected communities across the US.
This webinar is for:
- Community and economic development practitioners (municipal and nonprofit)
- Municipal leaders (elected and appointed officials; departmental heads)
- Urban and neighborhood planners
- Workforce development specialists
- Chambers of Commerce leaders
About the Presenter:
