Impact Week Conference 2022: The Future of LA

April 18, 2022 - April 22, 2022

Impact Week 2022 will focus on the future of Los Angeles by examining what our extraordinarily diverse city looks like right now. We will consider the factors contributing to the life experience — and disparities — in L.A. and discuss how different sectors interconnect. We will examine the built environment, inequitable food access, public green spaces, the mayor’s Sustainable City Plan , the burgeoning tech economy of Silicon Beach, improvements in public transit alongside skyrocketing real estate prices, growing numbers of unhoused people and soaring temperatures amid worsening drought.

In six years, the world will be watching when Los Angeles takes center stage as host of the 2028 Summer Olympics. Will the city present itself as a thriving and healthy metropolis? How will the city showcase its willingness to innovate and incorporate diverse thoughts to create social action? Which local corporations are seeding positive changes now that will sow benefits come 2028?

To attempt to answer those questions and inspire discussion, we will hear from a range of panelists and keynote speakers from both the private and public sectors. We seek change-makers from the grassroots level to the heights of industry who recognize UCLA’s research, education and service missions as crucial to the future of our region. By examining different L.A. neighborhoods, Impact Week 2022 will train a lens on the business solutions best poised to improve the social determinants of health for Los Angelenos.
