4. WEBINAR:

CENTER FOR INDIAN COUNTRY DEVELOPMENT POLICY WEBINAR: SUCCESSFUL STRATEGIES IN TRIBAL ENTERPRISE DIVERSIFICATION

This second session of the year-long Center for Indian Country Development (CICD) Policy Webinar Series is focused on understanding and addressing the strategic business decisions, challenges, and opportunities tribal enterprises face in today’s economic landscape.

Since time immemorial, tribal nations have innovated ways to provide for their communities’ well-being and prosperity. By necessity and through the exercise of self-determination, tribes have successfully created revenue-generating tribal enterprises and corporations. These tribal business entities not only fund the provision of public goods and services but also increase the capacity of tribes to expand and stabilize their economies and communities. As tribal business enterprises grow in capacity, size, and diversity, so does their role as important drivers of economic activity in Indian Country and beyond.

Join on July 14, 2021, at 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. CT to hear from tribal enterprise leaders who will discuss their experiences with diversification as a strategy for achieving long-term stability and economic resilience. Get a glimpse of economic-activity data across Indian Country and recent Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis-CICD research on tribal-business formation. Register today.
