As a global leader in entertainment, aerospace, international trade and higher education, Southern California enjoys an abundance of resources to aid in the region’s further development. It also has the nation’s most diverse population and is a hub for manufacturing and innovation. But Southern Californians face challenges in living up to the region’s economic potential. 

Join us Tuesday, August 23, at the Japanese American National Museum in downtown Los Angeles, for the first installment of our series "Storylines: Conversations with SoCal Movers and Shakers," during which we’ll examine transportation. What’s the future of transportation in Los Angeles? How is mass transit evolving? What’s next for L.A.’s airports? How will future Angelenos navigate Southern California?

Join KPCC’s commuting and mobility reporter Meghan McCarty, and some of Southern California’s most influential leaders, thinkers, movers and shakers as they share their vision and ideas for the future of Los Angeles. We’ll ask the panel and audience to consider the many facets of Southern California’s collective decision-making process, as well as the most productive strategies for growth, workforce development and infrastructure improvements.

Featured Guests:

Phil Washington, chief executive officer of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority  

Deborah Flint, chief executive officer of Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA)

This event is part of our series "SoCal Storylines: Conversations with movers and shakers." Through these forward-looking public forums, the Milken Institute California Center and KPCC, Southern California Public Radio, will dive deep into Southern California’s regional issues, including transportation, workforce, housing and innovation. We’ll talk to people on the front lines of those issues – and welcome you to join the conversation about how to solve some of our most vexing problems.
