Thought Leadership in Your Pocket

Municipal World introduces its new podcast, MW Shares, devoted to sharing the stories of communities from coast to coast to coast, and providing insights into the challenges and opportunities facing local governments today. This podcast will cover the stories that matter most to municipalities, municipal leaders, and their communities, covering topics like council-staff relations, place making, innovation, sustainability economic development, civic engagement, human resources, communications, managing change, and more. Hosted by Municipal World CEO Susan Gardner, MW Shares takes listeners deeper into the civic issues that municipal governments must tackle every day, highlighting new and emerging next practices, and sharing stories intended to shape and elevate conversations about community.

These are the stories of local government – the celebrations of success, the sharing of lessons learned, the cautionary tales, and the keen insights into what lies ahead for municipalities as they tackle the challenges of service delivery, governance and policy making in an environment that is both fiscally and politically demanding.

We invite you to join our conversation — and to perhaps share your story … here on MW Shares.
