About the Lawrence Partnership:
No single leader, company, school, or community organization can do everything by itself. Accordingly, we are a group of presidents, CEOs and executive directors of local banks, mills, businesses, schools, and community organizations, along with elected officials, unified around a vision of a growing and thriving Lawrence. We speak with one voice, share our resources, and meet regularly to identify and implement projects of transformational change.


Our work comprises many activities, all of which bring our partners together across sectors to break down barriers that constrain business growth and employment opportunities for our residents. We are bringing investment capital and expert mentoring to new and small business that traditionally have difficulty accessing both. We are working with large organizations in various capacities to create lasting employment opportunities and upward mobility for our citizens. And we serve as an advocate and voice for the City, communicating our successes and milestones to our residents and those in surrounding communities, as well our vision and optimism for the future.
