Boulder Economic Summit: Our Path Forward
What: The public health crisis continues to directly impact our local economy. As we all adapt to new ways of delivering products / services, working, learning and socializing, both challenges and opportunities within our economy have become more visible. Join us for our annual 2021 Boulder Economic Summit: Our Path Forward to understand our current economic condition, discern how these conditions have created new trends or amplified existing ones, and move towards practical solutions we can implement that positively impact our economic future.
Hear from local business, academic and civic leaders on how Boulder will take these lessons, adapt to the long-term impacts, and forge a path towards both a strong and inclusive economic recovery. To begin this year’s Summit, we will have an in-person Keynote Session on October 14th at the Embassy Suites Boulder followed by a networking lunch. Confirmed speakers for the Keynote Session include
- “Our New Economic Baseline” – Kate Watkins, Chief Economist, Colorado Legislative Council and Brian Lewandowski, Executive Director, Business Research Division, CU Boulder
- “2020: Foresight not Hindsight” – Josh Davies, CEO, The Center for Work Ethic Development
We will live-stream the broadcast for those who wish to only virtually participate. Lastly, we will convene two solutions-oriented webinars in November and December, focusing on “Our Changing Workforce” and “Our Changing Workplace”.
Who: This event is for local leaders who enjoy convening across sectors in the spirit of innovation and creative problem solving, as the opportunity for Boulder to collectively discuss our path forward.
