The Social Equity and Opportunity Forum of Portland State University's College of Urban and Public Affairs is leading an effort to advance thinking and practice regarding the social bottom line of development investment in the Portland metropolitan region. The purpose of this project is to define criteria for the social bottom line of community investments, and evaluation measures for assessing whether, and to what extent, such criteria are met. This presentation shares what we have learned thus far and discusses implications for advancing the social bottom line of development investment in the region. It is designed as an interactive session with time for discussion about the social bottom line assessment process.
