Created in 2015 to expand on existing efforts aimed at making our region more competitive in job creation, talent attraction and capital investment, the Greater Wichita Partnership brought together the Greater Wichita Economic Development Coalition (GWEDC) and the Wichita Downtown Development Corporation (WDDC) to develop a unique, holistic approach to community growth. Today, the Partnership serves as the region’s economic steward—cultivating a rich and innovative environment to grow local businesses and industries.
We are an organization built upon teamwork and the idea that, when everyone is advancing in the same direction, we can create a powerful force to effect change—and, thanks to our numerous investors and partners, we are.
Together we are:
- Growing primary jobs
- Empowering local entrepreneurs
- Developing the workforce of tomorrow
- Recruiting and retaining talent
- Improving perceptions
- Strengthening our region’s urban core
