Pathways and Barriers to an Inclusive Economy

 

Join experts from the non-profit, technology, and public sector to understand both barriers and opportunities for greater economic equity to some of the region's most excluded populations.

What are the obstacles preventing residents from accessing new opportunities? What are the challenges in linking education, workforce development, and investment in low-income communities and communities of color? How can we develop innovative and effective cross-sector solutions to overcome these challenges and prepare those who've been systematically excluded for economic opportunity to enter and play leading roles in the new economy?
