Future of Growth: The Economic Case for Inclusion
February 15, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm$75
A nationwide battle for talent, a soaring cost of living and a growing number of San Diegans unable to make ends meet are combining to form an unequivocal threat to San Diego’s competitiveness as a region. The growth of the innovation economy has made San Diego better educated, wealthier, more diverse and more prosperous than many of its peers. However, not all have benefited from that growth, and recent research through a partnership of the Brookings Institution and San Diego Regional EDC revealed startling findings that we cannot ignore.
Join San Diego Regional EDC for a luncheon with keynote remarks by Amy Liu, Vice President and Director of the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution. The event will focus on inclusion as an economic imperative, with employer-led presentations on tactics for achieving shared prosperity and sustainable growth.
