Though our state’s economic success is the envy of much of the nation, not everybody in Colorado has found a path to prosperity. Under the leadership of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, the Leadership Foundation and the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation, along with partners like the University of Colorado Denver and The Brookings Institution, Prosper Colorado is bringing together a diverse group of stakeholders – from various sectors, geographic locations, industries and perspectives – to identify gaps in opportunity and develop a range of strategies to close those gaps.
This stakeholder meeting is an opportunity for residents of the region to hear about some of the latest findings on equitable economic development strategies from national experts, learn about the progress and plans of the Prosper Colorado initiative and offer input on why people in our metro region are being left out.
Speakers will include:
- Joe Parrila, Brookings Institution
- Ryan Donahue, Brookings Institution
