Event description

Description


Several big trends in tech, the labor market, finance, and the field of community development have major implications for communities working to drive inclusive economic growth. In places as diverse as Dallas, Detroit and London, private and public partners are teaming up to test social innovation models and pursue place-based strategies to help cities evolve, empower communities to build ladders of opportunity, and enable businesses to adapt and play a leading role in growing markets. This work has taken on renewed urgency in the wake of recent global political developments.


Reimagine Communities is a peer learning convening of business and civic leaders, policy experts, and practitioners from near and far, and will explore these developments in light of several trends:


    • The rise of the sharing economy, emerging technologies, and bourgeoning tech economies outside of Silicon Valley;


    • A changing workforce and ways of working – demographic shifts and an evolving labor market;


    • Innovations in financing – including but not limited to Social Impact Bonds, Pay for Success models, and an increasing focus on long-termism; and


    • Persistent pockets of unemployment and poverty as well as widespread income inequality.
