Building Thriving Futures: Towards Inclusive Economic Growth

Virtual Roundtable
Tuesday, June 4, 2024
1:00pm – 2:00pm ET / 10:00am – 11:00am PT


In communities across the United States, leaders are forging pathways to resilience through dynamic collaborations between the private, public and social sectors. As we navigate the complex landscape of economic development, it’s evident that affordable housing represents just one component of wealth building to establish sustainable prosperity. Workforce development, small business support, and educational access are also among the myriad of avenues through which wealth creation and social equity can be cultivated. As we explore the intersections of equity, our goal is to uncover additional pathways that enhance economic mobility and empower communities to thrive, thus fostering a landscape of inclusive prosperity.

Join us for this insightful conversation hosted by FUSE,  in partnership with NationSwell, featuring special guest Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas. Cities are increasingly at the vanguard of narrowing wealth gaps. Mayor Lucas is a leader in breaking cycles of poverty, building wealth in communities of color, and strengthening Kansas City’s economy to build healthier neighborhoods. Together, we’ll exchange perspectives, share insights, and explore the meaning of exclusive economic growth. From dissecting the challenges to uncovering opportunities in wealth accumulation, we’ll examine the vital role of public-private partnerships for a more equitable future.



Our world is marked by constant social, political, economic, and environmental shifts, and it is up to us to come together to envision better possibilities for our communities. Join us for insightful cross-sector conversations where we explore opportunities to reimagine the fabric of our neighborhoods, cities, and towns to not just be resilient and adaptive to current and future challenges but to actually thrive in the face of these obstacles. In partnership with FUSE, NationSwell presents the “Building Thriving Futures: Re-imagining and Strengthening America’s Communities.” This event series will cover issues like wealth building, AI for good, climate justice, and civic engagement through the lens of cross-sector collaboration to surface solutions rooted in the needs and resources of communities across America.
