In the post-pandemic era, our region faces uncertainty around the future of housing, mobility, and employment. What is the new normal, who will benefit, and who will struggle to adapt? How can we plan for a different future when the present is still heavily in flux?

Join us at the 33rd annual Demographic Workshop, “Forecasting the New Normal,” where a lineup of leading experts will weigh in on what’s in store for post-COVID Southern California. The workshop, held in partnership with the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy, will be held virtually on the afternoons of Wednesday, Sept. 14, and Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Amid volatile trends and changing dynamics, this year’s workshop will contemplate how we can forecast an uncertain future with the relatively limited information available today.

Event panels will explore new pandemic-era demographic analysis, identifying which areas have begun to bounce back versus which are lagging behind, how different populations have experienced the rebound in different ways, and the impact of remote work and other emerging trends in our cities. The program will also include a keynote address and a series of expert-led roundtable discussions to build skills about topics discussed throughout the event.
