CALIFORNIA ECONOMIC SUMMIT 2017
November 2, 2017—November 3, 2017
Save the date for this year’s California Economic Summit, taking place in San Diego on November 2-3, 2017. Registration for the sixth annual statewide Summit opens on July 1 at CAEconomy.org.
Through the Summit, a vibrant and diverse network of business, government and civic leaders are advancing a comprehensive agenda to reduce poverty, improve workforce opportunities, increase the supply of housing, lower the cost of living, and invest in communities and infrastructure necessary for a sustainable future.
“The Summit addresses the need for a trained workforce, more affordable housing, and an improved infrastructure. With its expansive network, the Summit is organized and effective and we are pleased to support it,” said Kari Decker, Managing Director of Corporate Responsibility for JPMorgan Chase.
The Summit’s 2017 Roadmap to Shared Prosperity defines an action plan to address the One Million Challenges, a Summit initiative launched in response to the state’s high cost of living and wage gaps:
- Educate and train one million more skilled workers
- Build one million more homes
- Save, capture, and reuse one million more acre-feet of water annually
Building pathways to increase upward mobility is critical for the state’s future. The Summit has long been focused on California’s economic equality and expanding the middle class through a triple-bottom-line strategy that simultaneously grows the economy, improves environmental quality and increases opportunity for all.
