Kimber Lanning

  • Founder and Executive Director, Local First Arizona

Kimber Lanning is an entrepreneur, business leader, and community-development expert who works to cultivate vibrant, sustainable communities and inspire a higher quality of life throughout Arizona. Her long-time work at Local First Arizona fosters cultural diversity, economic self reliance, regional planning, and responsible growth in the greater Phoenix area.

In this talk, Lanning will discuss the relationships among built environments, economies, urban planning, and finance. Join us to learn how culturally rich and diverse socioeconomic built environments can stimulate local economies and foster placemaking, creating spaces that promote health, happiness, and well-being for all.

Raveen Arora, owner of Dhaba Cuisine, winner of Tempe's Don Carlos Humanitarian Award, and proud member of Local First, will introduce Kimber.

Lunch will be provided.

*Due to great demand, we have moved to a larger venue: Pima Room, Memorial Union, 2nd floor.
