Policy Summit 2021: Pathways to Economic Resilience in Our Communities
When & Where
June 23–25, 2021
Policy Summit is a regional conference that explores solutions at the practitioner and policy levels to challenges that low- and moderate-income communities face. The biennial multi-day event offers its audience of researchers, academics, practitioners, and policymakers the latest research and best practices through presentations and real-world conversations.
Policy Summit 2021: Pathways to Economic Resilience in Our Communities focused on economic resilience and equity and how they play out in communities of all sizes and compositions. The event highlighted 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 economic shocks, such as coronavirus-related closures, and underlying stresses, such as poverty and inequality. The effects of COVID-19 and racial injustice were front and center, across a range of topic areas, including but not limited to, small business, workforce and economic development, and housing.
