Online Conversation: Kennedy Smith, Diversifying and Strengthening Our Local Economy. @ Online

Join us for a conversation with Kennedy Smith, senior researcher at the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR) to discuss the benefits and challenges of diversifying a local economy. Smith will talk about factors that can threaten small independent businesses, and she will share policy tools that communities can leverage to establish a strong, equitable and independent local economy.
Kennedy is one of the nation’s foremost experts on commercial district revitalization, downtown economics, and independent business development. She co-founded the Community Land Use and Economics (CLUE) Group, a consulting firm that she co-founded in 2004. Her work focuses particular attention on cultivating locally owned businesses, creating dynamic retail development strategies, creating effective business and property development incentives, finding new uses for key historic buildings, and strengthening the organizational infrastructure needed to create vibrant town centers.
This conversation will be followed by a Q & A.
Free admission. Registration is required.
