Priority Project

Three Priorities. Three Years. Starting Now.

At a news conference on September 10, 2012, Visioneering, along with Young Professionals of Wichita (YPW) and the Wichita Downtown Development Corporation (WDDC), announced three recommended priorities for keeping south-central Kansas competitive for people and jobs:

  • Develop more Downtown Wichita activities and events for individuals and families of all ages.
  • Diversify our local economy by keeping industries already here and recruiting new jobs in new industries.
  • Increase the number of people in the region who advance their post-high school education, either through degrees, certificates, or re-training opportunities.

These priorities were established through a multi-phase process that culminated with more than 3,000 people from around the region responding to a community engagement survey that lasted over a two month period.

Visioneering, with its existing partners and perhaps new ones, will now work to mobilize its resources and align its collective focus on the top three priorities over the next three years.

Section Highlights:
  • Visit www.LaunchWichita.com to find and post internship opportunities in Wichita and the surrounding area.
  • Visioneering has 500+ vision partners dedicated to the development of a long-range strategic plan.
