Designing Inclusive Growth is a monthly dialogue on the future of development in New York City. In intimate conversations with leading urbanists and thinkers, we’ll examine what’s propelling New York City’s growth and development, why some have benefited while others have been left behind, and ideas for supporting greater inclusion and shared prosperity through design. The series kicks off March 12, and conversations will continue on the second Tuesday of each month through June.
April 9: Competitive Development and NYC
While the city’s unemployment rate is currently low, longer-term prosperity is threatened by rising housing costs, stagnant wages, and limited resources for education, infrastructure, and critical public services. In this talk, we invite experts to examine these challenges and share their knowledge of the rapidly changing landscape of work — from the role of automation, e-commerce, and other disruptive technologies, to programs that support working people and the city’s ongoing efforts to fold emerging industries into New York’s existing fabric.
