Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms to Welcome National League of Cities Shared Equity in Economic Development Cohort

WHO:

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms
National League of Cities
Democracy at Work Institute

WHAT:

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms will welcome the Shared Equity in Economic Development (SEED) cohort, a fellowship-based program launched by Democracy at Work Institute and the National League of Cities. The program responds to the growing interest of cities to create worker cooperatives as a pathway to build assets and stable business ownership opportunities for populations that have historically experienced challenges in the job market.

SEED is a year-long fellowship focused on providing legacy, small business owners with opportunities for succession planning and employee-owned business models.

For the past week, the City of Atlanta has served as host to SEED fellows from across three cities for this annual convening, that allowed participants to visit four historic neighborhoods in Atlanta, including Grove Park, English Avenue, West End, and Cascade Heights.

Program panelists will culminate their visit to Atlanta by presenting findings and recommendations to foster more equitable opportunities for small businesses across Atlanta.

WHEN:

Thursday, November 1, 2018
9:30 a.m.

WHERE:

Old City Council Chambers
68 Mitchell Street SW
Atlanta, Georgia 30303
