Wyoming's ENDOW focuses on foundation first, building second

May 2, 2018View for printing

Last year, Gov. Matt Mead asked me to do a difficult thing -- join the Economically Needed Diversity Options for Wyoming initiative executive council. He charged the council with bringing bold, game-changing ideas to the table that would help diversify Wyoming's economy for the long term.

The downsides of turning him down? Walking away from the chance to change Wyoming's economy in ways that provide lasting growth and stability for Wyoming families, with fewer boom-and-bust cycles. It was a chance to work with community and business leaders across the state to build the Wyoming we want future generations to inherit. Finally, it was a chance to drive action on what has been perhaps one of our state's greatest challenges -- eliminating barriers to economic diversification and focusing on industries with real potential for growth here in Wyoming.


What's more, we will be launching a public survey in the coming days that will enable citizens to provide ideas and feedback on industries, technologies and job opportunities most important to them. The survey will be posted on our website
