Community Development Summit

16th Annual Community Development Summit: October 5, 2017
Building Economic & Social Inclusion with the Disability Community worked to increase awareness around the connection between people with disabilities and poverty. Just over 100 attendees learned about and shared ways they can improve accessibility and foster an inclusive culture in their workplace, activities, programs and events.

Our RESOURCE PAGE includes a recap of the event, links to presentations, videos and other resources for those working with people with disabilities.

A special THANK YOU to our Sponsors and Supporters, who provided important support for a successful event.  

About the Community Development Summit
UEDA plans and organizes this annual event, bringing together Members, Partners and other stakeholders to discuss and explore relevant and emerging issues in the economic and community development sector. The goal is to assist in forging collaborations and partnerships that will foster more collective efforts and facilitate best practices to enhance economic development & job creation in southeast Wisconsin.  Learn about past UEDA Summits here

In 2018 UEDA will not be holding a Community Development Summit, but will be hosting three Emerging Topics Sessions, which will provide more frequent & intentional opportunities for our members and partners to connect, learn new ideas, and lift up the work and best practices in the sector. Join us as we continue our tradition of shared learning, purposeful dialogue and collaboration.
