Theodore Lipscomb Named to Top Job at LISC Milwaukee

A former county official is taking the helm at LISC Milwaukee with plans to expand economic development investments, especially those that address the racial wealth gap, and fuel COVID-19 relief and recovery. “We can bridge the gaps in health and wealth that affect so many in our city,” said Theodore Lipscomb, the new LISC Milwaukee executive director, "and catalyze opportunities for all our neighbors to thrive.”

A roundtable discussion with LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones and Verizon’s Chief Corporate Social Responsibility Officer Rose Stuckey Kirk, moderated by LISC board member and UVA business professor Greg Fairchild, delves into what it will take to get to economic equity for our country.

A New Kind of Industrial Revolution

The latest white paper from our Research & Evaluation team shows how LISC's ongoing work to support collaborative revitalization of industrial districts, in ways that promote equitable benefits for businesses and residents, helps bolster surrounding communities, even in the age of Covid-19.
