The 2021 CIC Virtual Impact Summit, Community Indicators for Change: Responding, Rebuilding, and Advancing Equity, was held virtually from November 1 – 4, 2021. As part of the summit, this keynote presents recent research by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco investigating how equity creates economic gains for everyone, generating findings in the trillions of dollars of GDP. How can local stakeholders use these findings to shift the narrative and create a more equitable and prosperous future for everyone? Watch the recording from the summit below to find out!

Indicators Making an Impact

Projects Driving Change in Their Community

The Alliance Center Impact Dashboard aligns their work with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) developed by the United Nations to ensure their local actions are relevant and measurable at the global scale. The Impact Dashboard could be called the Alliance Center’s “SDG-signature”, potentially allowing the sharing of SDG-signatures across members of a network, collaborative, or consortium and taking the first step towards identifying points of SDG alignment across these groups. As you scroll through the dashboard, you will see the SDGs that The Alliance Center is tracking and the specific projects that align with each goal, including SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy, SDG 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure, and SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities.
