Inland Economic Growth and Opportunity: Middle-Class Jobs for a Growing Region
April 2019

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.

Part of the solution is increasing access to higher education, and efforts are already well underway to increase the level of four-year college attainment in the region. Just as important, the region needs to support the growth of sectors and firms that provide economic mobility via skills training and career pathways, and increase access to those jobs for all residents, reflecting the diversity of the region.
