PIDC Theory of Change & Strategic Framework

With a strong foundation and a 65-year track record, PIDC identified the need to develop a new Theory of Change with three intersecting lenses – racial equity, future of work, and resilience and sustainability.  This plan builds the basis for the PIDC Strategic Framework which is intended to serve as a roadmap for PIDC to achieve its mission and strive toward a more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable Philadelphia where all residents benefit from economic development and a growing global economy.
