Power of Ten

A MORE AFFORDABLE REGION

November 9, 2023

The cost of housing across the region is becoming increasingly challenging for residents. We'll explore what we can do to make housing more attainable. 
Keynote Speaker:  Shane Phillips

Shane Phillips is a researcher and consultant on housing affordability. He manages the Housing Initiative within the UCLA Lewis Center for Regional Policy Studies, focusing on research, policy analysis, and education, and he co-hosts the UCLA Housing Voice Podcast, a biweekly show that translates emerging research for a non-academic audience. He's also the author of The Affordable City, which advocates for prioritizing supply, stability, and subsidies and offers more than 50 recommendations for advancing those goals. Outside of his role at UCLA, Shane has presented to audiences across the U.S. and abroad, written for major publications including the Los Angeles Times and Atlantic, and worked with public and private stakeholders on context-sensitive housing solutions. Originally hailing from Seattle, Shane earned his bachelor's degree in biochemistry from the University of Washington and masters degrees in public administration and urban planning from USC.
