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

Registration for this event is closed.

The Federal Reserve System will host its ninth biennial community development research conference in Washington, D.C. This unique event aims to bridge the gaps between research, policy and practice on key issues facing the country. The conference will feature original, high-quality, emerging research from a range of disciplines that can inform and affect how policy is formed and how community practice is carried out.

Featured speakers include Janet Yellen, Federal Reserve Board chair, and Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Prize-winning economist. Community developers and practitioners, policymakers, lenders, the philanthropic community, researchers, the financial services sector, state and local economic development agency representatives, and students are encouraged to attend.

Please register early, as previous conferences have sold out and space is limited.
