Building An All-In Bay Area

CAN WE MAKE EQUITABLE GROWTH OUR REGIONAL REALITY? 
Our region is booming, yet a rising tide economy is not lifting up low-income communities and communities of color. The Bay Area is the second most diverse region in the nation, yet the entrepreneurs, policy makers, teachers and politicians of our future are being left behind. The Bay Area is also a fast-growing region. Equity and inclusion are more critical than ever to ensuring our region’s continued vibrancy and prosperity. 
 
How does the Bay Area rank on inclusion? How can we ensure equitable growth so that everyone can reach their full potential?
