After the Great Recession, Grand Rapids experienced a great recovery. Our mid-sized city outperformed numerous economic metrics, climbing to the top of ranking lists and expanding at an impressive rate. Unfortunately, that newfound prosperity was not shared by all, and past successes do not guarantee continued success in the future.
Grand Rapids faces imminent challenges as industrial transformation, demographic transition, and the COVID-19 recession continue to impact all areas of our economy.
The Right Place, Inc. is committed to driving sustainable economic growth and shared prosperity for all in the Greater Grand Rapids Region. In partnership with the Brookings Institution, The Right Place had the privilege of joining a cohort of cities across the country to participate in Brookings’ Inclusive Learning Lab.
In this upcoming webinar, Building an Inclusive West Michigan Economy, we’ll share our findings and explore the identified barriers that threaten to erode the competitiveness of our regional economy.
