During challenging economic times, creative solutions to boosting underserved communities are at a premium. Our panel of experts will discuss how the private and public sectors can best join forces to support underserved communities through education, entrepreneurship and job training. eBAY CEO John Donahoe will bring his unique expertise in both business and government (through his presence on the White House Council for Community Solutions) to this high-profile panel. WISE is a Bay Area nonprofit that provides high-potential, lower-income women with training, resources and ongoing support to start and expand their business. The Bread Project’s mission is to empower individuals with limited resources on their path to self-sufficiency through on-the-job training in our social enterprises and assistance for employment in the food industry. All panelists will offer creative solutions that can provide empowerment not only to the underserved communities but to California as a whole.
