It has been nine years since EDC hosted its first Inclusive Growth Leadership Trip to Nashville, Tennessee. This May, a cross-sector delegation of business, government, and civic leaders headed to San Jose, a strategic peer metro facing the same challenges and opportunities as the San Diego region. Over two and a half days, our delegation learned and shared best practices in inclusive growth.
