Program on Economic Inclusion
Explore the programs, people, and events that inform the work we do to support economic opportunity for all.
Our biennial regional conference will focus on economic resilience and equity and how they unfold in communities of different sizes and compositions. The event will highlight the policies and practices that support or hinder people in our most vulnerable communities from being able to prepare for, adapt to, and respond to shocks and stresses. The effects of COVID-19 and racial injustice will be front and center across a range of topic areas, including but not limited to small business, workforce, and housing.
