COVID-19 has accelerated a need for adaptability worldwide, and in Wyoming, economic development experts hope alignment and collaboration practices adopted in 2020 by the business community continue into the new year.
“COVID-19 has highlighted the need for changes we haven’t put our finger on yet,” Wyoming Business Council CEO Josh Dorrell said. “People want change, and they want to see what can happen next. We see that as a great opportunity: to provide that leadership in economic development. We’ve been talking about CARES Act funding and how to keep businesses open this year, but we’re also having discussions about this need for vision, and alignment for that vision.”
