Southeast Florida Regional Opportunity Network Strategy Meeting
The Southeast Florida Regional Partnership and Seven50 invite the community to participate in an informative discussion about the trends impacting Southeast Florida’s residents and economy.
A key recommendation in the Southeast Florida Prosperity Plan is the creation of collaborative networks to address the important and complex challenges and opportunities facing the region. To advance regional and community economic competitiveness and vitality, we must leverage the region’s diversity and create new opportunities. We must work together to close the growing performance gaps in income, employment, education, health and access to opportunities which are placing our region’s and communities’ economic future at great risk. By increasing connectivity and access to opportunity (quality education, healthy communities, transportation, affordable housing, clean environments etc.), and by maximizing the potential of our diverse population, we can strengthen the middle class and create a more prosperous region and future for everyone.
