Regional Economic Development Strategy 1.0 Report
A blueprint for an enduring cross-sector collaboration to build a Greater Washington where everyone can thrive.
23 leaders from across industry, the public sector, academia, community, and philanthropy.
The report outlines the REDS path forward through 2024 and confirms the early focus areas for joint programming aligned with our integrated vision for social equity and economic development.
“We are creating something new: a more economically equitable and collaborative region. Imagine what we could achieve by doing bigger and better things together, from developing a regional talent pipeline to marketing the region to the world. Only by collaborating regionally on economic development can the entire Washington region reach its full potential as a global technology and innovation hub.”
