Since 2002 the Oregon Business Plan has been the state’s principal economic development forum, bringing together leaders from business, government, and nonprofit sectors to consider policies and initiatives to improve Oregon’s economy and life. In pursuit of Shared Prosperity, our strategic vision for the 2020s, the goals we advocate are to grow wages, increase the share of Oregonians working, grow household wealth, and increase economic mobility across Oregon’s diverse communities and geography.
The Business Plan has helped Oregon navigate two recessions and shape policy for a range of issues. Now we face the challenge of navigating a still-uncertain pandemic and seizing opportunities for long-term, equitably shared prosperity as we strive to come out of it.
Join Us at the 2021 Oregon Leadership Summit, Building Opportunity
Register today for the Leadership Summit. In keeping with this year’s Summit theme Building Opportunity, we are advocating policy and investment proposals in manufacturing, workforce education, and other opportunities to benefit more Oregonians, in particular those historically excluded and hit hardest by the pandemic.
This year’s Summit will be held in-person on December 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Oregon Convention Center with a livestream option so everyone can participate safely.
We are committed to creating a COVID-conscious event by following CDC and community guidelines. To ensure a safe space for those who choose to attend in person, we will be limiting attendance to maintain social distancing, requiring vaccinations and masks, sanitizing surfaces, and more. We will provide full details of our COVID protocols at registration.
