Nurturing the Regional Mindset of the Quad Cities
At Q2030, we believe that fostering regional collaboration will pave the way toward increased opportunities for success among community members from all backgrounds. Our focus areas include developing local sites and nurturing local industries to boosting engagement and promoting inclusivity.
Developing the Riverfront
Boosting Youth Engagement
Our organization is working toward the following long-term goals:
Bolstering the Childcare Workforce
By identifying gaps in training and best practices to implement on a regional scale, we can support early childhood educators and childcare professionals while meeting the growing demand for childcare services.
Our earliest work on this priority has included forums to build employer support of childcare friendly policies and investments and to convene early childhood educators to identify community-wide initiatives to support the success of the industry.
Promoting Regional Collaboration
We aim to amplify and increase regional collaboration by promoting multidisciplinary partnerships and exchanges in best practices. This allows us to nurture the collaborative mindset of Quad Citizens and ensure that we are positioned to achieve our regional vision. It also demonstrates our commitment to creating safe spaces where any community member can contribute to our initiatives. Some of our ongoing actions include:
PROMOTING DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION
To help our region become truly welcoming and inclusive, we are working with diverse community organizations to amplify the work they do to elevate traditionally under-represented populations and to bring more partners to the table.
