Alex Grodkiewicz / UpDayton

A nonprofit focused on attracting and retaining young creatives and professionals in Dayton has a new director. UpDayton has announced entrepreneur Lauren White will lead the organization as it celebrates its 10th anniversary.

The group was launched in response to the economic downturn and a desire to boost Dayton’s creative economy and quality of life. A decade after its founding, WYSO’s Sheila Raghavendran looks at how UpDayton's mission has evolved, and what might be next.
