The Valley Economic Alliance Hosts Virtual Healthy, Wealthy & Wise Wealth Equity Conference

Sherman Oaks, California– As a special installment of this month’s Livable & Sustainable Communities Committee Meeting, The Valley Economic Alliance (TVEA) will host its virtual Healthy, Wealthy & Wise Wealth Equity Conference on Thursday, July 21, 2022, 10:00 am – 11:30 am (PT). Since residents of the Valley face varying degrees of success in navigating housing affordability, financial self-sufficiency, and job readiness, The Alliance stands ready to support wealth equity across the board. The program’s roster of expert presenters and panelists will showcase strategies for securing viable employment, launching a business, purchasing a home, and more.

“While some Valley residents are thriving financially and enjoying a bright economic outlook, others are struggling to make ends meet,” said Sonya Kay Blake, president and CEO of The Alliance. “We are committed to bring all Valley residents the critical financial tools and resources to reach financial self-sufficiency.”

During the Conference, the discussion will be managed to explicate three separate themes benefiting Valley residents:

  • Healthy: A critical look at research discoveries linking health data health and economic outcomes, mental health and wellness resources, and COVID updates.
  • Wealthy: First-time assistance for home buyers, upskilling to maximize earning potential, exploring financial literacy facts, and forecasting occupational outlook.
  • Wise: Identifying affordable childcare options, maximizing broadband internet services, and learning about business startups.

Sponsors responsible for investing in this compelling event include Pacific Federal, LLC, Union Bank, Century Housing, Kaiser Permanente, Royal Business Bank, San Fernando Community Health Center, JorgensenHR, Kulchin Ross Insurance Services, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Bank of America, UCLA Health, Child Care Resource Center, Royal Business Bank, and the San Fernando Valley Business Journal. Agents from MidFirst Bank will also be present to assist participants with grant assistance and answer questions about application processes.
