IN BRIEF

  • 6:15 – The future of work and cities: “I think ‘what is the future of work’ is such a good question. I think we're all trying to determine the best approach. Is it a hybrid approach? Is it part-time? Full-time? Come back in platoons?”
  • 10:30 – City officials need greater focus on housing: “Cities have to look to investing in housing, new housing, renovated housing, affordable housing.”
  • 13:50 – A call to action for business leaders: “As cities go, so goes this nation. We need more major employers to look to cities as places to locate and then make a commitment to the residents of those cities for those economic opportunities and those quality jobs.”
