COMMUNITY STUDY SESSIONS

Building an Inclusive Economy in the Monterey Bay Region: A Progress Report

Read the report
We are excited to kick off a series of community study sessions aimed at fostering dialogue and engagement around the recently released report: Building an Inclusive Economy in the Monterey Bay Region. The report, covering Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Cruz Counties, serves as a valuable tool for community and business leaders. It offers indicators that shed light on the current status and progress made in building a fully inclusive economy. Notably, the report refrains from delving into the causal factors, presenting itself as a catalyst for discussion and further investigation. These study sessions will delve into these indicators, providing a platform for community members to share insights, perspectives, and collectively develop strategies to address highlighted issues. Join us in shaping the future of our region by participating in these informative and collaborative sessions. Let's build a more inclusive and thriving community together!
