About this event

2021 Expanding Opportunity Regional Summit

The 2021 Central Texas Regional Summit on Expanding Opportunity will bring together leaders from across the five county Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos Metropolitan area to explore how we can “ensure an equitable economic recovery.”

The Central Texas Regional Summit is a biennial event that brings together elected, policy and community leaders from across the five county Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos Metropolitan Area to explore how we can do a better job of improving access to economic opportunity for individuals and families in the region. Summit goals are to:

· Create a clearer sense of shared challenges and opportunities;

· Increase awareness of the interconnectedness of seemingly disparate efforts;

· Highlight collaborations already happening; and

· Foster new connections, ideas and actions to create an economically inclusive future for all people.

This year's summit theme is "ensuring an equitable economic recovery" as our region rebounds from the COVID-19 pandemic and will include:

· an overview of critical issues relating to the recovery by Professor Steven Pedigo;

· an economic and workforce profile of Central Texas provided by Workforce Solutions Capital Area and Workforce Solutions Rural Capital Area; and

· a panel on "innovative pubic-private partnerships aimed at making economic opportunity more accessible to a diverse workforce. At this time, the panel on innovative public-private partnerships includes the City of Pflugerville and Austin Community College.
