In collaboration with the Bay Area Asset Funders Network and Northern California Grantmakers, we are hosting the Learning + Action Series: Policies for an Inclusive Economy for funders, donors, policymakers, and practitioners concerned about the future of low and middle-wage workers in the region, many of whom are people of color, immigrants, and those impacted by the justice system.
The goals of this event series are to:
- Explore the intersection between asset building and an inclusive economy.
- Cultivate a deeper understanding of the specific components of the overall inclusive economy ecosystem and how they can play a role in supporting inclusive economy on the policy, practice, and funding levels.
- Build more of a shared understanding and analysis of these issues to create more aligned and collaborative grantmaking.
- Ensure that the voices and perspectives of most impacted by economic injustices are represented on the panels.
We envision a just Bay Area with vibrant, resilient communities, strong, local economies, and thriving industries that contribute to the health, well-being, and prosperity of all residents and a sustainable environment. Join our community of funders and practitioners working to create an inclusive Bay Area economy that provides equitable opportunities for good jobs, entrepreneurship, career pathways, and asset building, especially for those who are traditionally left behind.
