Greater Boston is facing a major shortage of housing that average workers can afford, and chances are that is impacting your business. Your region’s high cost of housing is making it hard to attract and retain top talent up and down the workforce. As a business leader, you’re uniquely positioned to advocate for positive change. We want to give you the tools to make a difference.
Join the Alliance and its housing partners for an invigorating four-session boot camp built to educate you, Boston's business leaders, about the negative long-term economic impact of the region’s workforce/middle-income housing shortage. This is your opportunity to engage the thought leaders of this topic as you hear from them about why we must make the case for investing in workforce/middle-income housing NOW in order to support economic growth in the Greater Boston area for the FUTURE. You’ll become deeply informed on this complicated subject matter, and will be equipped with the tools necessary to speak out. (Space is limited, secure your spot today!)
