This year’s event will feature two panels:
The Way Forward: Keeping California’s Growth Inclusive
As the 5th largest economy in the world, California embraces forward-leaning policies around trade, immigration, climate change, and tech innovation. With the rapid growth of the state’s leading industries comes the need for policies to keep pace. This panel features legislators who are leading the way on economic development that is innovative as well as inclusive, to share key challenges and opportunities. The discussion will also touch upon the importance of diversity in leadership positions in both the public and private sector.
The Sharing Economy: Big Challenges, Bigger Opportunities
The “gig economy” business model – ridesharing, home sharing and more – are in high demand and growing rapidly. This panel will discuss the recent “techlash,” the impact of this model on local communities and economic growth, and how policies can play a role.
