"What would it take to fundamentally transform the Greater Fresno Region by 2030 and create opportunities for all residents to achieve real economic mobility by fostering an economy that is inclusive, vibrant, and sustainable?”



Below is a Fresno DRIVE case study developed by Engage R+D with funding from The James Irvine Foundation. As the learning and evaluation partner for the Priority Communities Initiative, Engage R+D developed this case study to share insights about what it takes to seed and create inclusive and sustainable economic recovery for all residents in the greater Fresno area. This in-depth study summarizes the Fresno DRIVE journey, including its origin story, cross-sector partnerships, foundation of racial equity, and a look at the road ahead.

The DRIVE Surveys assess the constructs in the DRIVE Theory of Change -- the conditions we believe are needed to fundamentally transform our region and create an inclusive, vibrant, and sustainable economy. We pilot-tested five of our seven surveys among our initiative leads. We hosted two workshops sharing out these anonymous aggregated results and shared individual reports with survey takers.
