Friday Morning Refresh

Current conditions continue to place enormous demands on us. Still, we have cause for hope: bold new leadership in many places, budgetary step stones toward a just recovery, and a rising tide of action to disrupt systemic racism. Now, as always, we are each asked to bring clarity, generosity, and courage to our efforts to heal, reimagine, and rebuild toward large-scale change. We are invited to make space, in the midst of urgency, to notice more, re-vision priorities, reconnect with…

Corporate Philanthropy Session

A company's commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion within its corporate social responsibility can significantly differentiate its brand among community members and prospective employees. However, DEI initiatives tend to focus on internal communities while CSR operations focus on external communities. Both, fundamentally, are about reaching out to underestimated communities, welcoming new market insights, and driving collaborative solutions. How can you ensure both teams are connected with shared priorities so they can mutually reinforce one another? Join us for a session…

Every ten years, California adjusts the boundaries of political districts throughout the state to reflect new demographic shifts revealed by data from the Census. With the passage of Proposition 11 — the Voters FIRST Act — in 2008, our state’s redistricting process has been led by an independent panel of 14 citizen commissioners who “redraw the lines” of state and federal political representation every ten years. These decisions shape how our communities are represented, how our public officials are held…

California's economy will recover faster than the U.S. post-pandemic, strengthened by the entrepreneurial spirit in the state; technology, entertainment, and logistics industries, and; the development of inland areas, including the Imperial, San Joaquin, and Central valleys (UCLA Anderson Forecast, April 2021). The promise of a quick recovery cannot overshadow the potential for many people across the state to be left out of economic advancement. How can impact investors support a resilient recovery for all Californians? Join us for a discussion…
