Together, We Grow

The Greater Wichita Partnership is shaping the future of South Central Kansas through deliberate strategies for intended outcomes. Our investors are critical to achieving economic growth. While significant progress has been made, we believe this is just the beginning. Our ability to grow depends on an evolutionary-based mindset with the foresight to tackle the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow, in addition to today.

Promoting Progress

Today’s economic development is interrelated. In order to keep and grow jobs, you need people and in order to have people, you have to have a great quality of place. Since the Greater Wichita Partnership’s formation in 2015, we’ve successfully moved our region forward. Below are a few key highlights:

"We must proactively drive change, push conversations about what our region needs, and think and act differently, to create the future we want for the next generation."

Jon Rolph and Charlie Chandler, Co-chairs of the Greater Wichita Partnership

The Greater Wichita Partnership is focused on how to strategically create the most impact. We believe framing the focus of our work on three main priorities is the most effective way to fast-forward the region’s growth — jobs, talent, and quality of place.
