IE Leaders Gather for Regions Rise Together in San Bernardino

Regions Rise Together is an initiative of the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development, led by California Forward, with three goals: a process to gather input from stakeholders across California’s diverse regions, an opportunity to reinforce the State’s core values around inclusivity, sustainability and resilience, and an action plan to strengthen economic security, opportunity and mobility as well as to better connect inland California with the rest of the state.

news-riseRegions Rise Together kicked off in the Inland Empire on September 13 at California State University, San Bernardino. CEO Michelle Decker represented The Community Foundation and welcomed over 100 leaders from the IE who gathered for the first listening session, along with co-hosts IEEP’s Paul Granillo, and UCR’s Professor Karthick Ramakrishnan. More of these sessions are expected to take place in Kern County, San Joaquin Valley and Redding to gather input from important voices across California’s inland areas of the state.

Added Michelle, “Regions Rise is a good opportunity to partner with the State’s economic development and planning arms. Governor Newsom is investing in this effort because he wants the Inland regions to thrive. Today’s process allowed us to give a lot of feedback to his top staff directly – it was a good discussion and there is so much to share about the IE’s positive work.”

Regions Rise Together’s listening sessions will culminate in a report that will be shared during the 2019 California Economic Summit in Fresno on November 7 & 8.
