Promoting Inclusive Economic Growth in the Counties of Riverside and San Bernardino
The Inland Economic Growth & Opportunity (IEGO) campaign unites a diverse set of community leaders from the combined metropolitan area of Riverside County and San Bernardino County, a 4.5 million- resident region also known as the “Inland Empire” or “Inland Southern California.” Leaders in the region are steadfast in their commitment to expanding access to full-time jobs that enable working families to make ends meet.
Private- and public-sector leaders from Riverside and San Bernardino counties have catalyzed an effort to forge a strategic agenda for advancing inclusive growth and opportunity that will benefit residents of both counties and put the region on the path to a more prosperous and secure future. This strategic agenda endeavors to lift thousands out of poverty and broaden local access to opportunity by investing in better pathways to good jobs, improving educational outcomes, inspiring the region’s brightest young people to stay, and strengthening civic infrastructure necessary to address emerging opportunities.
UPDATE: IEGO is now entering its implementation stage, and the lead organizational contact for presentations and partnerships is The Community Foundation serving Riverside and San Bernardino (contact: Michelle Decker, CEO and Kim Potter, Executive Assistant/Office Manager).
