Director, Economic Development & Inclusion, Wilmington Alliance

Posted by Wilmington Alliance on June 1, 2021

The Wilmington Alliance seeks an experienced economic development leader who is passionate about driving transformative community change and is committed to dismantling social inequality to serve as its inaugural Director of Economic Development & Inclusion. Utilizing a collective impact approach, the Director will serve as a convener, bringing together local, regional and national stakeholders to drive equitable economic mobility efforts, and help build a culture of inclusion for the city of Wilmington. This is an incredible opportunity to create positive social change in one of America’s oldest and most diverse cities.

Founded in 2019 after the merger of two long-standing nonprofit organizations, the Wilmington Alliance seeks to build a more resilient and economically just Wilmington. Originally established with a focus on creative placemaking efforts, under the direction of CEO Renata B. Kowalczyk, the organization has expanded programmatically in order to address the challenges in economic mobility for BIPOC communities. Part laboratory, part convener, the Alliance seeks to be a common ground for community stakeholders to come together and solve some of Wilmington’s toughest problems. By building and nurturing networks of catalysts, pilot testing programs, and applying innovative approaches, the Alliance is changing Wilmington’s economic landscape for the better.
