Mobilize a team of leaders TO evaluate driving forces in your social economy


leadership: transformation team

Diverse stakeholders will be represented in your city's transformation team

The first phase engages your project leaders. We will train your project coordinator and orient your “Transformation Team”—a steering group of twelve influential leaders who recognize the need for change, can mobilize stakeholders and leverage resources to ensure the project’s success.

RHI’s inclusive engagement process identifies and gathers input from diverse perspectives critical to a broad understanding of trends and challenges in your city’s nighttime economy.

"Transformation, by definition, is focused on developing a culture where those involved can move beyond old ways of thinking to develop new attitudes and behaviors in themselves and others."
