The eighth annual statewide gathering of the state's largest public- and private-sector network will champion solutions that meet the triple bottom line — simultaneously growing the economy, improving environmental quality and increasing opportunity for all.
Regions Rise Together
Governor Gavin Newsom headlines an impressive list of speakers and has committed to sharing early findings from the brand-new Regions Rise Together economic development initiative at the Summit in Fresno.
“We need an economy that works for all Californians, no matter who you are or where you live,” said Governor Newsom. “The California Economic Summit will be a critical moment for us to come together, across all sectors, and commit to building inclusive and sustainable growth for the entire state.”
The growing speaker lineup also includes former State Treasurer John Chiang, Chief Economic and Business Advisor and Director of the Office of Business and Economic Development Lenny Mendonca, UC President Janet Napolitano, CSU Chancellor Timothy White, California Community Colleges Chancellor Eloy Oakley, and numerous state and federal legislators and other regional and state leaders.
The 2019 Roadmap to Shared Prosperity based on the input of more than 500 participants at the 2018 Summit in Santa Rosa, combines the best thinking and strategies from across the state for bringing about change that can make the CA Dream a reality for more Californians:
- Health and Well-being
- Housing, Mobility and Connectivity
- Lifelong Learning
- Ecosystem Vitality and Working Landscapes
- Prosperous Economies, Thriving Workers
