Getting Back to Work: The importance of building strong policy and partnerships to support and expand our workforce
What does a job really mean to a community? Financial security, personal opportunity, better health, a stronger environment, and investment in all the things that enrich our lives—just to name a few of the ways employment supports healthy, thriving communities. During this seminar series, we will rise above politics to explore the importance of private sector job creation. Across five sessions, we will examine specific ways jobs contribute to communities, while also discussing policies and procedures that support current and future job growth. The final session will focus on creating an environment for job creators to thrive.

About Suzanne P. Clark
Suzanne Clark is President of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States, the largest business federation in the world. She is the first female President in the institution’s 107-year history. Ms. Clark leads the strategic alignment and execution of policy development, government relations and market innovation in the quarter-billion-dollar organization. She also guides the strategic transformation of the Chamber’s policies and processes to best meet the 21st century needs of its more than 3-million-member companies internationally. Prior to re-joining the US Chamber in 2014, where she had previously served as Chief Operating Officer, Clark acquired and led a prominent financial information boutique – Potomac Research Group (PRG) – which was recognized by the Inc500 as the 135th fastest growing private company in 2012. PRG became a brand leader in the field of policy research and analysis for institutional investors – connecting “Washington to Wall Street;” and, the firm was sold to a larger macro research organization where she is a non-executive partner. As a seasoned business owner, Ms. Clark remains passionate about the need to create an environment where companies can innovate, grow and flourish.
