Implementation of the new 2016-2020 Los Angeles County Strategic Plan for Economic Development.
Marianne Haver Hill, Executive Director for the Strategic Plan is hiring a team at LAEDC to work collaboratively with organizations like yours throughout the region, to collaboratively support and drive implementation efforts. If you are interested in learning how this aligns with your organization’s goals and get engaged, please contact Marianne. See the Contact page for more details.
This Strategic Plan is ambitious, and for good reason. An unprecedented economic transition is underway, and we all need to row together to navigate the changing tide. Together, we, in the broader LA County community, have the “know-how” to make meaningful progress on the seven goals of this plan, improving standards of living for more of our neighbors and resulting in more widely shared prosperity. However, it will clearly require shared responsibility, added capacity and coordinated action by many organizations and individuals, inside and outside of government.
County of Los Angeles is looking at the role of government, and has now identified numerous opportunities to implement elements of the plan, and much more collaboration in the business, education, nonprofit, and public sector will be needed for an effective implementation.
JP Morgan Chase and Morgan Family Foundation were the initial funders of the Strategic Plan, and as of February 2017, LAEDC has been able to secure additional philanthropic, educational, and business funders to add financial resources to implementation, for dedicated resources at LAEDC to facilitate implementation. Read about it HERE.
A total of 101 metrics for success have been identified, with special thanks to the USC Capstone team that spent months on this project, and are available in the menu…and the process of refining metrics and collecting data continues. If you have data or metrics available to contribute or can assist in this process, your help is requested at LAEDC. Start with an email to [email protected]. LAEDC, along with designated goal champions and participants, will review and report on the progress made against benchmarks.

Endorse the Strategic Plan and Engage Your Elected Officials
For an effective effort, we need to spread the word about the Strategic Plan. Ask pubic, nonprofit, community, labor, faith-based, education, business or other stakeholders to advance the strategies and tactics developed in support of this vital work. As more people engage, more will be accomplished. Share our links and add your voice!
More details will be coming soon about roles for interested organizations, and how they can contribute to adoption and success of this plan.
During the implementation of the original 2010-2014 Strategic Plan, the LAEDC advanced initiatives in support of its goals. A few quick examples are:
