Let’s regionalize strategies for inclusive growth across San Diego.

For the region to remain competitive, San Diego must take proactive measures to promote economic inclusion. At EDC’s Report to the Community, we will unveil data on the region’s progress towards the 2030 Inclusive Growth goals and hear commitments to increasing the number of quality jobs, skilled talent, and thriving households across the region. The event will include breakfast and networking in the gym at the Jackie Robinson YMCA.
