Community development professionals seek practices that can assist their efforts in low- and moderate-income communities. But what ignites the innovative spark that leads to a promising practice? Nearly 140 participants gathered to interactively share and explore some of those topics at Shift Innovation, a conference hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. The event explored how thinking creatively about community development can unlock new and innovative solutions that can be implemented immediately.
Conference participants discovered new ways to:
- Boost organizational performance
- Broaden engagement in community leadership
- Cultivate entrepreneurship
- Spark social entrepreneurship
- Improve quality of life through creative networks
- Harness technology to connect with underserved communities
Who should attend?
Community development practitioners, community leaders, faith-based groups, local, state and federal policymakers, researchers, educators, lenders, philanthropic organizations and students.
