Incoming Gov. Gina Raimondo is holding a summit to bring together dozens of business and other leaders ahead of her inauguration next month.
Raimondo's transition team says more than 80 participants have been invited to participate in this evening's 3-hour-long summit, mostly from the private sector.
Raimondo says the summit is a chance for her to get ideas and feedback from people who she says are "on the front lines of policy, business, labor, social service and innovation."
The meeting was initially planned to be mostly closed to the media, but Raimondo's transition team later decided to let the media attend.
