Next Level Housing Solutions: Aligning Leaders and Solutions Across Sectors

On Monday, October 28, Next Level Housing Solutions session participants discussed:

  • How can we bring civic leaders, employers, educators, public health professionals, media and community leaders together as leaders, funders, advocates and solutionmakers? 
  • Can the evolving partnerships between housing and healthcare leaders pave the way and set the pace?  
  • How will we seed the alignment of transit and housing policy?  What other sectors are crucial, and how will we engage them?

Speakers before the group discussion included representatives working in health and others focused on cross-sector solutions.

  • Megan Sandel, Boston Medical Center (BMC)
  • Maddie Ribble, Massachusetts Public Health Association (MPHA)
  • Jeanette Pantoja, Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC)
  • Debra Sloan, Partners Healthcare
  • Abhidnya Kurve, CHAPA (Citizens Housing and Planning Coalition)
  • Jarred Johnson, Transit Matters
  • Jay Ash, Massachusetts Business Roundtable
  • André Leroux, Smart Growth Alliance

We will share a more detailed summary at a later date.
