Urban Strategies for Economic Mobility & Opportunity

Session Description

Cities and states must find new ways to address growing economic inequality and a shrinking middle class. Cities and foundations are developing and implementing new approaches to lift up urban residents and increase economic opportunity by boosting working family incomes, strengthening residents financial capabilities, providing new debt options, expanding job access and pathways to opportunities, and supporting foreign-born entrepreneurs.
