Community Conversations Initiative: Economic Development

Posted by City of Philadelphia on June 19, 2017

The village will gather again on Wednesday, June 21, 5:30 p.m. for our monthly series, Community Conversations Initiative, at the Community College of Philadelphia. Forged by a partnership between the Mayor’s Office of Black Male Engagement (OBME) and the Community College of Philadelphia’s Center for Male Engagement, the Community Conversations Initiative is a platform to engage Philadelphian’s and leaders who work for / with our communities. June’s discussion will revolve around “Economic Development” (Employment Opportunities, preparation, etc.). The initiative is a monthly forum where community members and leaders discuss challenges, opportunities, and solutions that address dismantling inequities that impact the lives of men and boys of color in the city.

Among other folks in the Economic Development community, the June 21st Conversation will feature a diverse array of panelists representing a few places in the field:

We are also urging registrants and organizational leaders to bring someone from your community to join the conversation. It is very important for us to empower our community members by engaging them in discussions about how to successfully navigate a system that doesn’t often include their voices. We look forward to seeing you soon.
