The objective of this convening was to invite authors of the book “Investing in What Works in America’s Communities” and other local and national experts to a dialogue on community economic development conditions and issues at work in Los Angeles. The two panel approach to the agenda allowed for demonstration of successful program and project models that reflect the book’s themes of combining people and place in collaborative and integrated ways, breaking down silos, and promoting entrepreneurship. Included was a discussion on public and private market investment challenges and opportunities in creating capital and policy solutions to grow the models and produce positive transformation within local communities.
