On Thursday, Sept. 16 and Friday, Sept. 17, the Growing Inland Achievement (GIA) will host, “Toward a Shared Vision,” a two-day virtual convening of Inland Empire community leaders from education, business, government, and nonprofit sectors who share a vision for increasing equitable educational attainment, adding more qualified people to the workforce, and contributing to a thriving regional economy.
Event participants will work together in sessions and workshops to discuss collaborative solutions that will drive transformation. Some of the sessions include stories of network collaboration and success, regional resources, tools and issues of interest, as well as students sharing hope and fears. The event will close with a lunch featuring State Senator Connie Leyva.
GIA is a regional collective impact organization aimed at increasing equitable postsecondary credential attainment, adding more qualified people to the workforce, and contributing to a thriving economy. GIA’s vision is that by 2035, San Bernardino and Riverside Counties will be widely recognized for their educated workforce, thriving communities, and vibrant economy that creates prosperity for all.
“Our ability to work together is what accelerates real transformational change,” said Dr. Carlos Ayala, President & CEO of GIA. “It begins with increasing educational attainment through an efficient, high- quality education system with a specific emphasis on accelerating success for historically marginalized groups. This, in turn, fuels a robust Inland Empire economy and creates wealth and prosperity for all residents of the region.”
