Fidelity Investments, Durham

January 26, 2017

A capacity crowd gathered at Fidelity Investments for dialogue and discussions centering around the Power of Data and Dialogue and North Carolina’s Economic Imperative.  We hope the conversations continue well beyond the Forum and the connections made lead to lasting benefits for our state.  We are pleased to share with you the presentations from our speakers, Anita Brown-Graham of the UNC School of Government and David Dodson of MDC.
