#Cities4Growth: The North American Tour
How Can We Engage More Voices in Building the Digital Economy?
Join the the Beeck Center for Social Impact + Innovation at Georgetown University for an interactive panel discussion on inclusion in the digital economy. Kicking off a four-city national listening tour in partnership with the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth, this exciting event will take a deep dive into the important question of how we can engage more voices in building the digital economy.
We will highlight the role and experience of impact-oriented leaders who are creating and supporting viable solutions to accelerate economic opportunity and promote equitable and sustainable growth in the digital economy.
This is an interactive program, including keynote speakers, a fireside chat, and a panel of distinguished experts drawn from across sectors – public, private, philanthropy, non-profits, and academia – who will engage in a moderated, in-depth discussion on the implications of inclusive growth for policy, business, and civic engagement.
This event is being co-hosted by The Rockefeller Foundation. A reception will immediately follow the panel discussion.

On the Front Lines of Inclusive Growth: A Listening Tour
This panel discussion is one of four that the Beeck Center is hosting as a component of the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth’s National Listening Tour. This tour will explore questions related to equity, access and inclusion in the digital economy. The Beeck Center will be visiting New York City, Oakland, Atlanta and then back to Washington, D.C., to explore and compare how each of these markets are uniquely experiencing the challenges and opportunities around this important question.
