On September 23, the 2021 GBC Next Up cohort came together for a session on Civic Leadership — Business & Government Collaboration. The event featured Baltimore City Council President Nick Mosby; Jayson Williams, President & CEO, Mayson-Dixon Companies; and Marc Broady, Esq., Vice President of Community Affairs for Weller Development Company.
The speakers, as well as GBC President & CEO Don Fry, bring considerable experience at multiple levels in both the government and business arenas, and know first-hand the importance of the business and government sectors working together to find solutions to the problems that affect our economy and quality of life.
The conversation covered topics such as the intersectionality between business and government, Baltimore’s Superblock and Port Covington redevelopments, Public-Private Partnerships, and the importance of honest communication and creating meaningful relationships. This discussion was particularly relevant in light of the recent changes in leadership for the City of Baltimore and upcoming state elections.
