New Economy LIVE: Diversity and Inclusion as Economic Drivers
Welcome to the New Economy LIVE series.
Spend the evening with Calgary’s top community leaders and leading researchers.
Every month in 2020, the New Economy LIVE series will bring together community members from all walks of life to learn about our city’s economic strategy, Calgary in the New Economy. All are invited to come network with Calgary Economic Development staff, share ideas and hear from a diverse panel of experts.
Calgary in the New Economy features 4 areas of focus: Talent, Place, Innovation and Business Environment, and the New Economy LIVE series aims to show Calgarians why these four pillars are so critical to a vibrant economy.
February's event is focused on PLACE and actively supporting diversity and inclusion, which advances our vision for becoming the most livable city in Canada.
This event is free and open to all ages.
