Economic Mobility: Research and Ideas on Strengthening Families, Communities & the Economy

Washington, DC
Hosted By:
Federal Reserve System / Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis

The Community Affairs Officers of the Federal Reserve System invite you to attend the ninth biennial Federal Reserve System Community Development Research Conference. Over the years, this unique event has aimed to bridge the gap between research, policy and practice on key issues facing the country. The 2015 conference seeks to inform a robust public conversation about economic mobility.

High-quality and emerging research will be presented in a dialogue with policymakers and community practitioners who can utilize the lessons gleaned from research. The conference organizers hope to use the broad theme of economic mobility to advance our understanding about how people and communities get ahead, where impediments exist, how factors such as inequality play a role and what has changed over time.
