Boston is considered one of the most innovative cities in the world. What are the consequences of being so innovative? How do we work together to responsibly and inclusively grow our regional economy? Similar cities such as Seattle and San Francisco are struggling to work together to solve issues caused by such rapid growth.

Join us in an honest conversation with experts - advocates, developers, brokers and academics - who will discuss what's occurring in Boston and how we can work proactively and collaboratively to make Boston innovative and inclusive.
