Women’s Leadership Forum Workshop: Economic Empowerment:  Women in the Workforce

The Shriver Report identified that in 2014 42 million women, and the 28 million children who depend on them, are living one single incident—a doctor’s bill, a late paycheck, or a broken-down car—away from economic ruin.  This is at a time when women earn most of the college and advanced degrees in this country, make most of the consumer spending decisions by far, and are more than half of the nation’s voters.  Hear from a diverse panel of women who will discuss the steps that have been taken, and need to be taken, to ensure economic empowerment for women.  Panelists will also share information about how they were able to overcome the gender gap to become prominent leaders in their communities. 


2:30 pm – 4:30 pm
Understanding Public Service Ethics Laws and Principles (AB  1234 Training)
State law requires that elected and appointed officials receive training in specified ethics laws and principles every two years.

2018 Election Debrief – What’s Next for Counties
This late-breaking, emerging issues workshop will breakdown the 2018 November election and the major changes facing counties. Statewide ballot measures impacting how counties provide transportation infrastructure and collect discretionary revenue are before voters. What happens if they pass? Plus, California will welcome in a new Governor who could reshape the state-local relationship. Back east, congressional shake-ups could hurt or help statewide and local policy goals. Attendees will hear from issue experts and political insiders about the elections outcomes and what it means for your county as we look to 2019 and beyond.

1:30 pm – 4:15 pm

How can you help prepare the public before disaster strikes? Join us for a mobile workshop and visit the San Diego County Emergency Operation Center to hear about the lessons learned from the history of firestorms in California and innovative ideas on emergency public alert,  warning and preparedness technologies.

1:30 pm – 2:45 pm
Homelessness and Housing: New Opportunities
Join county supervisors, state staff and providers for a conversation on homelessness in California. From affordable housing to emergency shelters, counties are grappling with homelessness issues across the spectrum. And while the 2018-19 state budget includes more than $700 million in new funding for local governments to combat homelessness, counties must balance both the short-term and long-term needs of their communities to design a comprehensive local response to the issue. Co-sponsored by CSAC and the Latino Caucus of California Counties. 

3:00 pm – 4:15 pm
California County Roundtable
What’s Going On in Your County?
That’s the question at the heart of the “California County Roundtable”, a workshop featuring county supervisors discussing what’s important right now in their counties —whether those are thorny problems, clever solutions, or important issues they think other county officials should be thinking about. After supervisors give their three-minute presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to talk at length about the subjects that were raised and the connections they made with what’s going on in their own counties.
