Wilmington, Delaware was not the only city to lose its largest employers. Cities like Detroit, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Bethlehem, Seattle, and Rochester faced similar challenges. There is now an opportunity to figure out how we should rebuild our economy for the long-term. Wilmington's story and relationship with the DuPont Company is unique, but is there something we can learn from the efforts of other communities?
Who is impacted when big companies leave? How are cities rebounding? What can cities do to protect themselves and mitigate risks?
We look forward to discussing these questions and listening to your input at our meeting!
