Join us to get an inside look at Oakland and the greater East Bay's regional economy, industry and job growth, impacts of COVID-19, and industries poised for economic growth. The seventh annual report provides a deep dive into Oakland and the greater East Bay's regional economy, industry and job opportunities, impacts of COVID-19, and industries poised for economic growth. The report has become the most thorough and widely used annual economic analysis in the City/Region. Dr. Chris Thornberg, founder of Beacon Economics, considered to be one of the nation's leading economists, will lead us through a comprehensive presentation of the report.
Dee Dee Myers, Senior Advisor to Governor Gavin Newsom and Director of the Governor's Office of Business and Economic Development, will offer a special presentation.
This year, the Oakland Metro Chamber of Commerce has joined with the Kennedy School of Public Policy at Harvard University's Growth Lab to study Oakland and the region's economic composition. We will have two speakers from Growth Lab, Annie White and Frank Neffke, who will provide a presentation on our region's economic composition, how it compares to other areas across the County, and what we can do to maximize our local assets.
