For many individuals the Central Coast is a place to thrive and enjoy economic success, however the Central Coast economy is not working for all. Reports suggest residents are struggling to get by, let alone get ahead, with 86% of our workforce population believing that our young people today will not be able to live here when they grow up. To address these concerns The Hourglass Project was created to bring together industry, academia, and policy makers across two counties and twelve cities to address issues that hold our region back such as housing affordability, infrastructure, talent development, and job creation.
Join host Fred Munroe as he speaks with Melissa James, President and CEO with the Hourglass Project and Andrew Hackleman, VP Strategy with the Hourglass Project as they discuss how the Hourglass Project is focused on uniting the region together under a common vision, identity, and action plan to create jobs and economic opportunity for Central Coast residents, to ultimately increase our standard of living and quality of life.
