Fall engagED: Forum

November 4, 2022 | 9:00 a.m.

Greater Sacramento had two major company expansion announcements in the past weeks – Solidigm and Orca Bio.

These companies are bringing thousands of jobs and billions in economic benefits to the region. They are fundamentally changing our regional economy, creating more inclusive pathways to high-wage employment and strengthening our economy.

What does it take to bring these types of companies to a region? How can we continue to attract more critical investments in the future?

We’ll dive into these questions and more during our engagED Forum Nov. 4.

This is your opportunity to connect with regional leaders, hear national business relocation consultants’ impressions of our region and learn how we can best position our economy for success.

The program will include:
Networking and breakfast
Overview of GSEC’s Competitiveness Council’s work
Panel discussion with national business relocation consultants (site selectors)
Audience Q&A
