Call for Submissions: What Works in Your City
You've asked and we've listened: city, civic, and business community leaders are all looking for the solutions being implemented in urban economies to promote job growth and sustainable economic development. At the 2012 Inner City Economic Summit, we will look at these city solutions, using case studies from those on-the-ground doing this work every day.
In partnership with CEOs for Cities, we will be hosting a special interactive session at the Summit: "What Works for Cities: Spotlight on Solutions." To learn what really works, we need YOU to share with us "What's Working" in your city!
Call for Submissions: Share with ICIC and CEOs for Cities "What's Working" in your city for a chance to present the initiative or program at the 2012 Inner City Economic Summit.
From economic development department initiatives, to foundation-led programs; from services offered through nonprofits and local CDCs, to business-led case studies, we're looking for the best examples of how to create jobs, grow businesses and revitalize urban economies.
Specifically, we've honed in on three categories:
- Sector-led workforce development;
- City and anchor economic development collaborations; and
- Efforts to create jobs and build businesses in the food cluster.
We're particularly interested in the strategies being employed in small- and mid-sized cities.
An advisory committee will select the top three examples from each topic area. Each winner will be invited to join ICIC and CEOs for Cities as part of the "What Works for Cities" panel on Sept. 19th. A discussion about these examples will follow, including the lessons learned and ways to replicate in other cities.
Each year, ICIC hosts the Inner City Economic Summit, a convening of business and civic leaders who learn from cutting-edge research and share best practices in the field of urban economic and business development.
