Registration opens today for the 2016 California Economic Summit taking place in Sacramento on December 13-14.
The fifth annual Summit will bring together one of the state’s largest networks of public- and private-sector leaders committed to the triple bottom line. At the event, members of the expanding Summit coalition will advance the One Million Challenges, the Summit’s ambitious goals for expanding upward mobility—and ensuring widely shared prosperity—for all Californians. Released in January, the Summit’s 2016 Roadmap to Shared Prosperity offers detailed action plans to:
- Improve the workforce pipeline so more Californians can develop the skills they need to earn livable wages.
- Increase the supply of housing near transit and jobs so more Californians can find affordable homes in sustainable communities.
- Expand regional water management to ensure more Californians live in healthy watersheds with reliable water supplies.
The Summit has already made significant progress on each Challenge this year—but there is much more to come.
As living costs rise and more than one in four Californians continue to struggle to find pathways out of poverty, the December event will galvanize action to put even more families on the road to shared prosperity. It will also give participants a unique opportunity to discuss how business executives, civic innovators and policy leaders can work together to promote a prosperous economy, a green and resilient environment, and thriving communities.
