"Keeping NYC Competitive in an Age of Hybrid Work"
A Center for an Urban Future Policy Symposium
Replay of the event
This forum explored a range of ideas for how city and state leaders can keep NYC competitive amid the rise of hybrid work and other fundamental economic shifts that have taken root and accelerated since the start of the pandemic. Faced with this challenging new post-pandemic landscape and growing competition from a host of other cities, our speakers offered ideas for what New York's policymakers should prioritize—including new or scaled up initiatives, projects, and policy changes—to address emerging challenges and seize new opportunities to make New York even stronger, more vibrant, and more equitable.
