Invitation: Economic Equity Policy Dialogue with Newly-Elected Mayor Ken Welch
This virtual event will host newly-elected Mayor Ken Welch and leading practitioners in the field of economic equity – including housing, commercial, business, workforce, and economic development – for a 1.5-hour dialogue on equitable development, as one of the mayor’s top policy priorities.

The Mayor will introduce priorities for his administration, and – along with panelists and attendees - lend insights to defining the emerging field of equitable economic development. A panel of local equity practitioners will each ask one question of the Mayor, collectively covering diverse topics in the economic equity arena.

The event will be end-capped with open mic questions of the Mayor by attendees.

Advanced registrants will receive a webpage with information links on 30+ equity initiatives underway in St. Petersburg.
