Alicia Glen, NYC Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development

Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen leads the administration's efforts to grow and diversify New York City's economy, invest in emerging industries across the five boroughs, build a new generation of affordable housing, and help New Yorkers secure good-paying jobs that can support a family. With more than 40 City agencies or authorities under her purview, Glen's portfolio includes: the Department of City Planning; the Department of Housing, Preservation and Development; the Economic Development Corporation; the Department of Consumer Affairs; the Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment; the New York City Housing Authority: Small Business Services, and the Landmarks Preservation Commission.

Recent examples of Glen's work to expand New York's economy and create higher paying jobs for New Yorkers, include: strategic investments of more than $200 million in the Brooklyn Army Terminal and Brooklyn Navy Yard innovation hubs; spearheading WENYC, an entrepreneurship initiative to equip women with the skills and resources they need to create and grow businesses; implementing Career Pathways, an overhaul of the $500 million workforce development system, to focus on an industry partnership model- such as the nationally recognized Tech Talent Pipeline-where real-time feedback from businesses informs training for New Yorkers who can then enter productive, good-paying careers.
