Community Development For a 21st Century Economy
Ellen Watters provides strategic counseling to clients engaged in community development, economic development and workforce development. Much of her work addresses the intersection of these disciplines and leveraging cross-sector collaborations to move communities and initiatives forward in building greater prosperity.
Ellen believes that historic boundaries between economic development, workforce development and community development no longer apply. Building effective strategies to create economic prosperity now rely on understanding the inter-relationship of those fields. This new approach to developing communities includes all sectors – government, nonprofits and private sector concerns.
