On Wednesday, March 20, City of Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane​ welcomed local, regional, state, and national leaders to an event where the report Want to Grow North Carolina’s Economy? Fix the Child Care Crises was released. The report was written by ReadyNation, a global nonprofit that leverages the experience, influence, and expertise of more than 2,000 business executives to promote public policies and programs that build a stronger workforce and stronger economy. 

While ReadyNation had their pick of NC cities to launch the report, they chose Raleigh given our current efforts in this space. Organized by the City’s Office of Economic Development and Innovation and in partnership with area business and policy leaders, the gathering brought together a diverse cross-section of disciplines and professions including a retired Vice Admiral of the US Navy. Vice Admiral Morgan lends his voice to investing in early childhood as a matter of national security as well as a topic affecting economic development. This event is one way the Office of Economic Development will live into the City’s commitment to equitable economic development as quality child care is one of thirteen building blocks of economic mobility.

Watch the full-length video of the event.
