Innovation for Inclusion Summit: Harnessing Technology to Create More Equitable Cities

New information, communication, and transportation technologies have generated countless innovations in business and commerce that are reshaping economies in US cities and metropolitan areas. But we know little about how technological changes reinforce or reduce racial and economic inequalities.

The summit will explore new platforms facilitating better communication between residents and their governments and technology-supported tools local leaders are using to tackle inequalities head on.



Based on ICMA’s A Budgeting Guide for Local Government, this series is hosted by Jon Johnson, the director of finance and administration for the Alliance for Innovation. Jon will pull from over 30 years of experience in financial administration for municipalities, counties, school districts, public universities and non-profit entities.

You will discuss:

  • Lessons for budgeting and the budgeting cycle
  • Budget preparation and legislative approval
  • Managing conflict through a budget policy
  • Executive implementation
  • Financial controls, communication, and compliance
  • Accounting and auditing
  • Capital budgeting
  • Performance measurement

The states and provinces of the Midwest share much more than a border. We have many common policy interests, as well as invaluable economic and cultural ties that bind us.
