About the Program

The past year has highlighted and heightened California’s key challenges. As the state emerges from the pandemic, how can policymakers pave the way for an equitable recovery? Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis will join PPIC President and CEO Mark Baldassare for a wide-ranging conversation, with a special focus on the economy.

As part of our Speaker Series on California’s Future, PPIC invites leaders from across the political spectrum to participate in public conversations. The purpose is to give Californians a better understanding of how our leaders are addressing the challenges facing our state.
