2016 Madison Region Economic Development & Diversity Summit
Presented by: MadREP & Urban League of Greater Madison
Location: Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center (One John Nolen Drive, Madison)
Featured Speaker: Dr. Manuel Pastor of USC, Yasuyuki Motoyama of the Kauffman Foundation, and Assistant Secretary of Commerce Jay Williams
In our third year of continued partnership, the Madison Region Economic Partnership (MadREP) and the Urban League of Greater Madison (ULGM) will host a joint event for Madison Region business and community leaders focused on economic development and diversity.
This annual Summit builds on our previous two joint events in a collective commitment to advancing talent, opportunity and growth for all the region’s citizens. As we weave together the important conversations of diversity and economic development, we seek to mold this region into a model for economic inclusion.
We know that diversity spurs economic growth, while homogeneity slows it down. Thriving regions across the country — those that we typically think of as top-tier — have embodied, embraced, and encouraged diversity in all its forms. The Madison Region is poised to become one of those top-tier regions if we act upon the opportunities before us.
