Building for the Future "Best Practices for RAD" was created by Robert Bell for the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority
In today’s every-changing climate, it’s essential for municipalities to have an educational and support initiative to help small, minority and women-owned businesses to effectively navigate challenges, overcome barriers to inclusion and be prepared to achieve economic prosperity.
This comprehensive training lays the foundation for a new paradigm for social equity and Economic Inclusion success. The proprietary model consists of eight (8) Building Blocks that enable an entire organization to support an inclusion initiative. Delivered as a two-hour web-based class with hands-on activities, you will learn how to implement best practice strategies and use special Building Block tools.
Building for the Future is a process of “Best Practices” by which a municipality improves the economic, social and environmental well-being of all its people. Our professional training solutions cover subject areas determined to be the core “Building Blocks” to lay a solid foundation for planning and implementing a successful economic development initiative focused on inclusion strategies.
