EVENT DESCRIPTION

The Silicon Valley Regional Economic Forum is one of the 16 regional forums in the state of California to help identify economic competitiveness issues of the region. In partnership with local organizations, we produce this event to discuss the issues that matter to us most.

The results from the forums are funneled up to a state wide summit or Capitol day to identify the issues facing the state. All of these efforts work to streamline legislation for the most pressing issues of the state.

This year’s panel topics will include Housing, Education Workforce, Income Inequality and Diversity and Sustainable Energy.
