Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s virtual 4th Annual OneEastside Economic Outlook Summit. Special thanks to our speakers, sponsors, and supporters.
It was a busy morning of great presentations and conversations beginning with Spencer Cohen of High Peak Strategy’s economic outlook for the Eastside. Cohen’s presentation conveyed a tale of two economic recoveries; with certain industries, including information technology, making a robust recovery while other parts of the economy, such as the Eastside’s small business community facing continued challenges from the impacts of the pandemic.
This year’s OneEastside Fireside Chat brought together leaders from our business and nonprofit sectors to share what most surprised them about the past year and discuss the challenges and opportunities facing the Eastside including how we can work together to ensure that economic recovery benefits all individuals in East King County. We can build a better economy when everyone sits at the table.
If you missed this inspirational program, don’t despair! You may view the recaps, videos and slides via the links below. We look forward to seeing all of you in person at the 2023 OneEastside Economic Outlook Summit!
