STRATEGIC PRIORITIES

2021 - 2023

BUILDING TOMORROW TOGETHER

The DRC is deeply invested in strengthening the Dallas Region and its vibrant and diversified business community. Our strategic plan, called “Building Tomorrow Together,” is based on four core priorities:

      • Continue to drive economic growth that allows us to recruit companies and talent.
      • Fostering collaboration between the business community, educational institutions, and workforce development organizations to meet industry needs.
      • Advocating for pro-business, pro-growth public policies to ensure the continued prosperity of our region while maintaining a high quality of life for all.
      • Addressing systemic racism head on and working every day in every way to build a more inclusive community.

Together, with our hundreds of member companies and regional partners, our strategy is to serve as the preeminent voice of the business community and a bridge to the education and nonprofit community to drive growth, and an even better quality of life for all who call the Dallas Region home and for those interested in coming here.
