Co-Working in Erie: A Case Study of the Economic Impact of Radius Co-Work and the Future of Erie County

June 2nd,2022 | 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Professor/Instructor/Speaker: Jessica Taylor, B.A.

The way we work in the United States has been shifting over the past couple years and Erie County is no exception. A remote or hybrid work option is becoming a standard requirement for employees of many companies around the nation, not to mention the influx of self-startups we've seen pop up during the pandemic. Erie was rated as one of the top places in Pennsylvania for remote work in 2021. What should we be doing as a community to capitalize on that shift and how can we make Erie a welcoming place for those looking to relocate? Places like Radius CoWork have already laid the groundwork and created a culture that can be looked at as a model to attract and retain the talent we need to see Erie grow and thrive.


This event is free to the public and will be live-streamed on our Facebook page and made available on YouTube afterward.
