California Center

Advocating for policies that strengthen California’s position as a global leader in trade, entertainment, technology, agriculture, aerospace, and manufacturing


The Milken Institute California Center is dedicated to identifying solutions to strengthen California’s role as a global incubator for innovation in policy, technology, and business. Although one of the world’s largest economies, California faces persistent challenges in affordable housing, infrastructure investment, and the future of work. We conduct research and develop programs that tackle these challenges with sustainable solutions, providing changemakers with the tools to fuel innovation and growth.
