The Business Case for Economic Mobility

Thursday, March 7, 2019
8:00 - 11:45 am
Valo Park
7950 Jones Branch Drive
McLean, VA 22107

Our local economy continues to thrive. But our region, like the entire country, is experiencing a growing gulf between the have and the have nots, rising income inequality, and a lack of economic mobility that has developed in the past 50 years. It is a defining problem of our age, and everyone has a role to play in helping to solve it. 

Inspired by the US Partnership on Mobility from Poverty, the 2019 Shape of the Region Conference will discuss strategies that each sector of society can deploy to achieve a more expanded, more inclusive economy that benefits us all.
