The Week Ahead: Delving Into Economic Opportunity

On Wednesday, the
Urban Institute and Citi Foundation will co-host an event titled, “Promoting Economic Opportunity: Models That Work.”

This event is an opportunity for practitioners, policymakers, funders, and community stakeholders to learn fresh insights, discover new data, and learn innovative approaches to help poverty and discuss strategies for transforming neighborhoods into environments that create economic opportunity.

Specifically, the event will hold public, nonprofit, and private partners together to discuss the developing programs and strategies that drive positive economic outcomes for low-and-moderate-income residents in the major metros of Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.

During the event, which will live stream at 8 a.m. EST, the discussion on economic opportunities, will feature high-impact organizations and visionary keynote speakers from across the nation—highlighting new ground they have broken and discuss future efforts to create lasting change for individuals and communities.
