The Community Foundation launched the first Shape of the Region Conference in 2018 to share data from the newly launched platform, the Opportunity Index for Northern Virginia on data trends that impact our region’s strategic economic growth.
The half-day event has grown in scope, and has become a platform to discuss economic mobility, income inequality, and increased opportunity for our region each year.
The 2020 event, held on Thursday, March 12th, was presented in partnership with the Asian American Chamber of Commerce, George Mason University, Northern Virginia Black Chamber of Commerce, Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce, Northern Virginia Community College, Northern Virginia Regional Commission, Northern Virginia Technology Council, the NOVA Hispanic Chamber, and Virginia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Its theme was: The Economic Case for Inclusivity.
Past topics have included: Opportunity & Inequality and the Business Case for Economic Mobility.
