As a region, we commonly discuss topics like workforce development, career pipelines, and the notorious "brain drain" phenomenon (when young professionals trained in the region leave to find work elsewhere) – all of which surround the importance of curating our efforts now and for the future. Yet, therein these conversations are critical questions to address:
What are young professionals looking for in a career? In a lifestyle? In a home? — Can this be achieved in the Inland Empire?
How do we orient our efforts today to create more sustainability for future generations?
How do we harness the new ideas and inspiration of young professionals?
Why is this even important?
Tune in for the next webinar as we focus on the future and host a panel of young up-and-coming professionals, who are also alumni of WRCOG's Public Service Fellowship Program, as they share ideas for what they think the future of the Inland Empire could look like.
