What Would It Take to Substantially Increase Mobility from Poverty? That is the question animating the US Partnership on Mobility from Poverty. Funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and housed at the Urban Institute, the Partnership is a collection of 24 leading scholars and practitioners working across disciplines – and they’d like your boldest ideas. During this informative and interactive workshop, representatives from the Partnership will describe their approach (open, broad, and collaborative) and solicit your input on policies, programs, and ideas that can contribute to solutions.
