In today’s media, rankings are everywhere – from the best ballpark food to top 10 vacation spots to most loved Harry Potter character - they can be fun and eye-catching. But rankings can also inform citizens, politicians, businesses, and the media. Rankings are used to direct investments, drive competition, affect perceptions, and build a local, regional, and national narrative.

 

So how does the St. Louis region measure up according to the numbers? Does perception match reality? How should we use rankings to tell our story?

 

Join us for the first of three conversations to explore these questions and share your perspective. On Oct. 14, leading St. Louis journalists will consider how we talk about St. Louis and rankings from East-West Gateway Council of Governments' Where We Stand 7th Edition: The Strategic Assessment of the St. Louis Region. Check out the report before the event online at www.ewgateway.org/wws.
