April 21: CM Webinar: The Front of the Line is Not Inclusive: Why We Need a Better Way to Save Our Small Businesses

The Front of the Line is Not Inclusive: Why We Need a Better Way to Save Our Small Businesses 

Tuesday, April 21, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. EDT

Government programs to save small business are rolling out weekly. They are a big and blunt instrument that is slow moving and wide. But they are not reaching the targeted needs of the small businesses in our communities. And they are not being deployed in a way to ensure inclusive access to save our small businesses.

Ilana Preuss, founder and CEO of Recast City, leads a discussion on concrete steps we can take to ensure inclusive access for small businesses, a framework that can help us look at this issue, programs already being adopted by local governments that are targeted to under-represented populations in business owners, and models from non-profits, CDFIs, major corporations, and philanthropy to ensure an inclusive recovery from this economic crisis.

Participants of the live webinar are eligible for 1.5 AICP CM credits.
