The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) is working with all state agencies to protect the health of our citizens and provide business sustainability resources aimed at maintaining the vitality of the companies upon which our economy depends.

The WEDC, Regional Leadership Council and AuroraWDC created the COVID-19 CEO Leadership Series Webinars: Lessons Learned from WI CEO’s on How They are Managing the COVID Crisis and later the #Close the Distance Series, which features state business and health leaders on the latest medical updates, insights into how companies are adapting their operations to the COVID-19 pandemic, and how these best practice examples might apply to your business.

To watch these webinars click HERE!

The WEDC created the below guide, ‘Rising to Challenges: Navigating Through COVID-19 In Wisconsin’. This guide is designed to serve as a repository of ideas, tips and best practices compiled from local, state and national resources to allow these communities to survive and thrive in light of current and rapidly changing circumstances.
