By KPCC In Person (other events)

Wednesday, December 14 2016 7:30 PM 9:00 PM

As a global leader in entertainment, aerospace, international trade and higher education, Southern California enjoys an abundance of resources to aid in the region’s further development. It also has the nation’s most diverse population and is a hub for manufacturing and innovation. But Southern Californians face challenges in living up to the region’s economic potential.

Join us Wednesday, December 14 for the final  installment of our series "SoCal Storylines: Conversations with movers and shakers," during which we’ll examine regional innovation. What new and innovative ideas are helping revitalize SoCal communities? How do businesses develop leaders? What is being done to  grow L.A.’s  future entrepreneurs?

KPCC senior reporter Ben Bergman will ask some of Southern California’s most influential leaders, thinkers, movers and shakers to share their vision and ideas for the future of Los Angeles. We’ll explore the many facets of Southern California’s collective decision-making process, as well as the most productive strategies for growth, workforce development and infrastructure improvements.

Featured Guests:

Noramay Cadena, Co-founder of Make in L.A.

Additional guests to be announced. 

This event is part of our series "SoCal Storylines: Conversations with movers and shakers." Through these forward-looking public forums, the Milken Institute’s California Center and KPCC, Southern California Public Radio, will dive deep into Southern California’s regional issues, including transportation, workforce, housing and innovation. We’ll talk to people on the front lines of those issues – and welcome you to join the conversation about how to solve some of our most vexing problems.
