iNetwork Winter Conference

CLES Associate Director Tom Lloyd-Goodwin delivered a session on “Building an Inclusive Economy” at the 14th Annual iNetwork Winter Conference.

This year’s conference theme was Connecting People and Place, focused on supporting a new vision to build vibrant and sustainable local communities, connecting people to place and sharing innovative thinking from all levels, including community leaders, practitioners and local enterprises.

The session drew upon CLES’s experience of Local Wealth Building over the last 10 years to explain how this approach is being used to build and inclusive economy in areas such as Manchester, Preston and Salford.

Tom said:

“The session was full, and produced a rich discussion around the way in which anchor institutions can promote greater inclusivity, opportunity and well-being for local people.”
