Visionary public, private, and civic leadership in Arizona has made an exponential impact on our metropolitan areas over the last two decades, re-orienting the region’s traditional real estate, retail, and business attraction economic drivers toward innovative public-private partnerships and advancing high levels of economic growth in research and development and science, technology, engineering, and math companies.
Now faced with the new challenges and opportunities of an international health pandemic, how will we sustain this impact? We must accelerate as a center for innovation, trade, and talent that creates sustained – not boom and bust – opportunities for our residents and businesses.
Join ULI Arizona as we engage some of the most impactful changemakers to discuss their visions for Arizona, reflecting on the past and looking toward the future. Our program begins with a keynote from Tom Murphy, Senior Resident Fellow, ULI Canizaro/Klingbeil Families Chair for Urban Development, and former mayor of Pittsburgh, who will share his experience in urban revitalization, what drives investment and what ensures long-lasting commitment.
