During this virtual, 5-week event series, we will hear from experts from up and down the I-5 corridor as they share their insights and remind us of our collective responsibility in creating a successful regional community.

Since March, working from home has become the norm. And with many companies not planning to operate from their offices until mid-2021, many urban business districts will be left vacant for the foreseeable future. What does this mean for the economic ecosystems of our region’s business and tech hubs?

At this session of the Pacific Northwest Study Mission, we'll hear insights from experts in tech, real estate, and retail as they share current trends and their outlook on this new way of business.
