The Idea Lab for Equitable Economic Development

The Idea Lab is a virtual platform that brings voices from a variety people, places, and perspectives on how to improve equitable economic development. It hosts in-depth articles and interviews on research and practice to advance the field. Join us to explore the Idea Lab.

What is Equitable Economic Development?

The economic development practice is at an inflection point. Extreme income and wealth inequality has reached crisis levels and the field is under disruption to better respond to these trends. It will take a community of practice testing a range of innovative ideas to best localize solutions for more equitable outcomes. Check out the Gallery of Voices to learn from a range of perspectives on how we can create more equitable economies.

Connect and Collaborate

We believe collaboration drives better idea generation for change. Let’s work together to create more equitable economies.
