Culture of innovation and collaboration set the foundation for a more diverse Louisiana economy

Louisiana’s penchant for economic diversity and innovation was on full display in 2022 when the Space Launch System blasted Artemis, NASA’s new moon and Mars mission, into space. With significant contributions from Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans, the SLS rocket is emblematic of the future-focused economic development mindset that has also resulted in major recent investments in the state’s tech, life sciences and water management sectors.
Diversifying and Innovating

As hubs of innovation emerge across the state, Louisiana’s workforce is rapidly diversifying as well, thanks to a host of strategic education partnerships that are preparing students to step into post-graduate careers that impact global health outcomes, facilitate space exploration, strengthen the nation’s cybersecurity and build a more resilient coast.
