The NADO Research Foundation has curated a series of resources related to equity and regional economic development and planning that may be useful to RDOs on our NADO.org website. Over the past few years, NADO staff have received several requests from members for resources on equity relating to RDOs’ internal policies as well as economic development and regional planning programs and projects. These resources and other tools are shared on our new resource page, https://www.nado.org/rdo-equity-resources/.
The page includes examples of RDOs’ work, as well as resources on data, engagement, economic development, planning, transportation, and resources to shape policy and program design. It will be updated over time with more information.
If you have additional websites or documents that you find helpful in your work, or examples of RDO programs, policies, or projects to share, please email NADO Associate Director Carrie Kissel at ckissel @ nado.org or NADO Graduate Fellow Austin Barrington at abarrington @ nado.org.
