The North Central Washington Economic Development District is doing some groundbreaking work in making economic development more accessible to rural communities as well as to groups of people that typically are left out in the cold in our economy.

The NCWEDD earned the Economic Development Award for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion from the Washington Economic Development Association. I sat down with NCWEDD executive director Alyce Brown and Director of Development Brooklyn Holton recently to talk about the efforts the agency is taking to create greater equity in terms of opportunities for economic development.
