Report Launch: Building an Inclusive Economy
Join the Bay Area Council Economic Institute for the launch of its new report in partnership with LeadersUp: Building an Inclusive Economy: The Bay Area Young Men of Color Employment Partnership (BAYEP), which will be held on Tuesday, April 30 in San Jose. This report shares the learnings from the BAYEP project and provides recommendations for improving how the region’s business and civic leaders can create an inclusive economy through offering better supports and opportunities for young men of color and others systematically disadvantaged by our economic system. Our findings address the unique barriers this underrepresented pool of talent faces throughout their path to middle skills work, critical to advancing an inclusive, diverse economy. Crucially, the voices of the young men themselves helped guide our conclusions as we incorporate the findings of surveys and focus groups conducted throughout this effort.
Special thanks to Alaska Airlines for its sponsorship of the report and tremendous leadership in helping to build a more inclusive economy.
Contribute to our roundtable discussion around the report findings alongside key stakeholders in inclusive economy efforts. This group will includes employers, civic leaders, community-based organizations, policy advocacy organizations and other groups that help drive the economic and social outcomes of our region.
