Economic and Workforce Development

System Issue

There is a tension between businesses structured around viability and profit and community economic stability supported by equitable wages and employment practices.

Committee Vision

We envision a system where local businesses balance the wellbeing of their company, employees, community, and environment; all people in Kent County are able to achieve their employment and financial goals.


We meet on the 1st Thursday of each month from 8:30-10:00 am. Our meetings are open to anyone who wants to participate.
