Carla Harris checks in with Hope Knight, President and CEO of the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation, on how she continues to support her community in the time of COVID-19.
Welcome back to Access & Opportunity. In these unprecedented times of COVID-19, we're checking in with some of our favorite guests from previous seasons to understand how they're adjusting their schedules, their businesses, their outlook, and their investing styles. In this episode, Carla welcomes back Hope Knight, President and CEO of the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation and a member of the New York City Planning Commission.
Ms. Knight was the inaugural guest on Access & Opportunity almost two years ago. We wanted to see how, despite the current circumstances, she continues to nurture opportunities for businesses in the Jamaica neighborhood of Queens, in New York City. We discuss how she's supporting her partner businesses and tenants, how she's managing the challenges of remote leadership, and her hopes for a relatively rapid recovery.
