The State of the West Symposium is a joint program with the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR). Their mission statement:

We support research that informs economic policymaking while engaging future leaders and scholars. We share knowledge and build relationships among academics, government officials, the business community and the public.
