WealthWorks is an approach bridging community and economic development to build multiple forms of community wealth, resilience, and local ownership. This webinar provides a short overview for newcomers to the approach, followed by a focus on issues RCAC practitioners identify as critical. For example, identifying opportunities for change, including gaps and bottlenecks, and strategies for addressing them while building wealth. The webinar also revisits being "demand-driven" and building relationships with demand partners.
