HOW THE SELA AGENDA WAS DRAFTED
The SELA Agenda was drafted through a collaborative process in partnership with a network of leaders working and committed to serving the SELA region engaged through the Collaborative’s SELA Leaders Network.
During a three-month process, the SELA Collaborative convened over 80 SELA leaders, representing 55 organizations, through two virtual meetings to identify issue areas and investment opportunities. They discussed ways to support the immediate response to the COVID-19 pandemic and address the region’s long-term well-being. Following the first convening, an AdHoc Writing Committee was created to support the drafting of The SELA Agenda report. The SELA Collaborative leveraged its members’ expertise and tapped other leaders in the region to support this process.
“Having experienced decades of underinvestment and disinvestment, the recovery of the region will be of critical importance not only for the SELA community but for the economic prosperity of Los Angeles County.”
