What is Equitable Economic Development?

There is no one set definition or approach that is creating more equitable economies. Instead there is a community of practice comprised of practitioners, researchers, stakeholders, and changemakers representing many different perspectives, roles, and responsibilities in advancing the field. 

The Gallery of Voices provides a platform to listen, learn, and inspire each other to elevate ideas that could be impactful to your community of focus. Listen to Sara Lawrence describe the motivation for the Gallery and her impressions from conducting the interviews.
