LAEDC 2015 Economic Forecast Event – Introducing A Long-Term Look At Our Economy
LAEDC’s twice-yearly economic forecast events provide insight and planning information to our members, partners, LA County leaders, and the general public. On October 8th, LAEDC shifts its format for the event to include a five-year planning horizon for the forecast, to preview which industries will grow the fastest, which occupations and related job training will be most in-demand, and we will look at various aspects of innovation in our economy to predict transformations in our business community, labor force requirements, and elsewhere in the economy.
With the help of our guests such as Cal State University Chancellor Timothy White, we will discuss the drivers in the economy, such as the changing requirements for an educated workforce, so that attendees can keep their organizations savvy, relevant, and positioned for success in our global market.
- Our industries are becoming more innovation and capital intensive, and the workforce in almost every field requires skills that are very different from 10 or 20 years ago.
- Hear how our universities are adapting and innovating to deliver a workforce that is relevant and competitive, as we explore how innovation is essential to regional prosperity.
Join us on Wednesday, October 8, 2014

As California’s leading Economic Development Corporation, serving the 10 million residents of Los Angeles County, the LAEDC has long hosted the civic conversations that have developed and advanced our region’s most impactful initiatives to improve our economy and the lives of those who participate in it. As education is central to these initiatives, we invite you to attend our special summit on Education and Innovation.
The world is innovating at a very rapid pace, and the California economy is undergoing rapid and profound changes due to global forces. Our industries are becoming more innovation and capital intensive, and the workforce in almost every field requires skills that are very different from 10 or 20 years ago.
Join CSU Chancellor Timothy White as we ask how our universities are adapting and innovating to deliver a workforce that is relevant and competitive, which is essential to regional prosperity. California’s higher education institutions give our state a competitive advantage, and in particular, the role of the CSU System in preparing our workforce that the economy will need in the next 5 to 10 years. As part of this focus, LAEDC’s Dr. Robert Kleinhenz is providing a longer range forecast to show what this economy is going to look like 5 years from now, to help our businesses, educational institutions, and workers prepare to be continuously ahead of the curve.
Staying ahead of the game is our key to successful global integration. Please join us on October 8 as we engage in this critical conversation.
