GNHCC 2023 Annual Policy Summit

September 14, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Greater New Haven region is currently in a stage of economic growth, as displayed by the success of several growing industries, a bustling airport, our growing arts and culture scene, and the local talent generated by our strong colleges and universities. While the success of the region is something to celebrate, we must ensure that the economic success of the region is being shared by all of its residents, and that we are building an equitable economy. While there are many components to an equitable economy, such as affordable housing, workforce, childcare, procurement, and more, this event will focus on the K-12 education system and supporting minority  entrepreneurs.

The Policy Summit will feature a Keynote Speaker who will focus on the current state of the New Haven Public Schools system. Two panels will have thorough conversations addressing the issue at hand. The first conversation will focus on the barriers to entrepreneurship from a panel of entrepreneurs and support organizations, and a second panel of legislators will discuss new ideas and solutions to address K-12 education, support minority entrepreneurs, and generate wealth. The Policy Summit will feature thorough conversations where you will hear experts share their experiences and ideas on how we can build an equitable economy in New Haven and create a model for the rest of the state to follow.

Join us immediately following our program for a networking reception with delicious food and drinks!
