Aligning Focus: How the Greater Wichita Partnership Accelerates Growth
As an innovative, collaborative organization we work to proactively drive economic development efforts in order to position our region to grow. At the Greater Wichita Partnership we work with others toward common goals to advance the unique qualities of our region.
We are focused on three main priorities: jobs, talent and quality of place, all to fast-forward the region’s growth. These priorities are shaped by three highly detailed, research-driven plans that were developed in 2018: the Regional Growth Plan, the Talent Marketing Blueprint and Project Wichita. These priorities are also informed by the master plan for downtown Wichita’s development, Project Downtown. The efforts identified in these plans require many private and public sector partners to achieve success and support growth in Wichita and the region.
We support the creation of jobs through business expansion and retention, company attraction and cultivating entrepreneurship.
We work with businesses and the region to attract and keep talent while also supporting talent development.
Quality of Place
We are focused on developing a distinctive quality of place that attracts talent, visitors and economic growth.
