Events


Over the course of a year CED hosts dozens of educational forums designed to showcase new research and report recommendations. CED is a unique convener of business and education leaders who are interested in national economic data and regional impact. Events take place in regions as diverse as rural Mississippi, with early childhood education workers, to top business leaders in New York City discussing the role of money in the political system and how to strengthen trust in our democratic institutions. Events are structured to stimulate informed debate and ultimately, to engage business and civic leaders in working together to improve shared economic growth and prosperity.
