Miami Leadership Local:

Ensuring Economic Mobility


/ about

Miami Leadership Local arrows logo

Miami is rapidly becoming one of the world’s most vibrant and desirable cities. Yet for so many residents, the city is increasingly unaffordable – a situation that threatens individual well-being and the local economy. With an eye towards making sure that Miami’s growth offers opportunity for all who live here, Miami Leadership Local has brought together local business leaders and philanthropists to publicly discuss the important issues affecting the quality of life and economic mobility of South Floridians, and seek solutions.

On Friday, October 27, Miami-based law firm Bilzin Sumberg hosted Miami Leadership Local’s inaugural Economic Mobility Summit, which explored the most salient challenges faced by South Floridians, such as housing affordability, workforce readiness, childcare solutions, and improving education, among others. The event served as a valuable opportunity for business leaders to talk with other business leaders and philanthropists to talk with other philanthropists to arrive at practical and sustainable approaches to tackling local challenges. The Summit will continue to take place annually, while working groups centered on specific challenges discussed at the Summit will meet throughout the year to refine and advance their ideas for improving local livability.

If you are interested in hosting the 2024 Summit or supporting it with a sponsorship, please contact Jane Wooldridge, Senior Director, Miami Herald /el Nuevo Herald, or 786-547-1147
