Harvard: Conference on Poverty and Inequality 2020 | Saturday, February 29

The Conference on Poverty and Inequality is a student-run conference at the Harvard Kennedy School. Over the past four years, the Conference on Poverty and Inequality has rapidly grown into a leading platform for students, alumni, faculty, and policy practitioners across Harvard and the Boston area who are interested in addressing issues that affect individuals and communities experiencing poverty and marginalization.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Towards a More Just World: Strategies for Increasing Opportunity and Mobility.” Aligned with this theme, this year’s sessions will focus on the role that housing, education, health, work and financing play in increasing opportunity and upward mobility. The conference will feature a keynote speech from Ms. Nisha G. Patel, former executive director of the U.S. Partnership on Mobility from Poverty at the Urban Institute.
