Piedmont Together plans follow-up equity summit

  • 1/30/2015

"Building Bridges to a Stronger Economy: Part II"


On Thursday, April 2, 2015, Piedmont Together will host "Building Bridges to a Stronger Economy: Part II" at the Hawthorne Inn in Winston-Salem, NC.

Piedmont Together is excited to announce "Building Bridges to a Stronger Economy: Part II," a follow-up event to December's equity summit. At December's summit, PolicyLink presented the Triad Regional Equitable Growth Profile and Regional Equity Action Teams were formed to address specific topics the Piedmont Triad faces.

The summit will focus on equitable development, the reports from the Equity Action Teams formed during December's summit, and the creation of the Regional Equity Network. 

The Regional Equity Action Teams will present and discuss specific strategies that can be employed in communities across the Piedmont Triad. Summit attendees will have the opportunity to engage in discussion with the teams. 

Mobile tours will take place in the morning prior to the start of the summit. These optional tours will provide a first-hand look at the equity issues the Regional Equity Action Teams are addressing. 

Save the date and plan to attend "Building Bridges to a Stronger Economy: Part II" as the equity discussion in the Piedmont Triad continues. Registration will open in early March. 

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Please contact Mark E. Kirstner, Piedmont Together Project Manager, at (336) 291-4308 or markk@partnc.org, or Sarah McGuire, Piedmont Together Project Assistant, at (336) 291-4337 or piedmonttogether@partnc.org.
