“Our ability to work together is what accelerates real transformational change,” said Dr. Carlos Ayala, President & CEO of GIA. “It begins with increasing educational attainment through an efficient, high-quality education system with a specific emphasis on accelerating success for historically marginalized groups. This, in turn, fuels a robust Inland Empire economy and creates wealth and prosperity for all residents of the region.”
