Despite the growth in our local economy, our region, like the entire country, is experiencing a growing gulf between the have and have nots, rising income inequality and a lack of economic mobility that has developed over the past 50 years. Inspired by US Partnership on Mobility from Poverty, the 2019 Shape of the Region Conference, “The Business Case for Economic Mobility,” will explore strategies that each sector of society can deploy to achieve a more expanded, more inclusive economy that benefits us all.
