The Atlantic City Makers Summit Dallas

March 16, 2016  •  1 Comment

I captured The Atlantic City Makers Summit in Dallas.

Urban regions across the United States are experiencing rising levels of poverty and inequality. This economic disparity—paired with a widening skills gap thanks to the digital divide—hinders cities' abilities to become productive, sustainable communities.

Dallas has been thriving, ranking nationally for high levels of business expansion and employment growth. New technology and energy companies have relocated to Dallas, paving the way for innovation and startups in a bustling entrepreneurial sector. Despite the city’s bright future, many in the city still live in poverty while middle-skill jobs in the city go unfilled, complicating Dallas’ success story.  Can the tech sector help narrow the skills gap?  How can local firms create effective pipelines for hiring to ensure that everyone can participate in Dallas’ growing economy?

Attending the #CityMakers Summit were Mayor Mike Rawlings, Elaine Agather Chairman JPMorgan Chase & Co. in Dallas, Miguel Solis President Latino Center for Leadership Development, Craig Lewis Founder and Chief Entrepreneur Officer Visage Payroll and others.

Enjoy!
