As we finish another week of self quarantine, we are learning about the strengths and resiliency of our regional assets amid this crisis. We are tracking changes in industries and how our communities and businesses are evolving quickly to fit current demands. We’ve seen incredible leadership demonstrated by our solid health sciences community. Several area businesses including StemExpress, California Northstate University and UC Davis are stepping up to find solutions to COVID-19. They are restructuring to fit the need of the community and the world and tackling this pandemic head-on.
The Greater Sacramento Economic Council is initiating webinars for the community and remaining connected to all of our partners and advisory councils through online technology and video conferencing. And we are hyper focused on remaining engaged with businesses seeking to locate and expand in the region, with new opportunities tracked and commitments made even over the past week. We are also looking forward to the Federal Stimulus Plan and how state leaders will fit the Greater Sacramento region into California's share.
It is more important than ever to work together and learn from one another on evolving as this virus spreads. We will rise to meet these challenges and come out stronger in the end.
