3rd annual ThinkWoo, Action! Worcester’s community think tank on Tuesday
College students, professionals, city officials and members of the community will gather to continue the conversation around challenges affecting the Worcester community.
“ThinkWoo: We can solve that!” will start with an introduction and official unveiling of a new A!W summer program. Attendees will then break into topic-specific focus groups that have been matched with participants’ indicated interests. Participants will discuss topics that were identified through last year’s focus groups, as well as those found in reports produced by the Executive Office of Economic Development, Worcester Regional Research Bureau and the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Groups will comprise individuals from each of the different affiliations – students, professionals, local business owners and organizations, and city stakeholders. It is hoped the diversity of these groups will ignite innovative solutions to the city’s most prevalent obstacles. Topics this year include: Creating Inclusive Business Opportunities Downtown, Building National & International Partnerships, Defining the Personalities of Worcester’s Neighborhoods, and more.
