The Wyoming Business Council announced on December 22nd the launch of the Thrive > Survive Campaign, featuring Wyoming stories where innovation, lots of elbow grease and working together have helped communities and businesses weather the pandemic, sometimes even growing stronger.
So far the Thrive > Survive Campaign spotlights resiliency stories from Laramie, Cody, Rock Springs, Gillette, and Lander at thrivewyoming.org. The Business Council plans to add more features in the coming months. Anyone with an uplifting story to share can submit their ideas on the website.
“The unprecedented challenges in 2020 have reinforced the necessity for Wyoming to go beyond just survival mode and figure out ways to thrive,” said Business Council CEO Josh Dorrell. “To see people rally together, come up with creative solutions and really look out for their neighbors gives me a great sense of pride and excitement for the future. We need to tell our stories and learn the lessons that we have taken in so far.”
“As a state, we’re going to face more challenges beyond this pandemic,” Dorrell said. “We now know what we’re capable of and what difference we can make if we rally together. I think that, together, we’re going to be able to face upcoming challenges and thrive.”
