The Policy Summit is the Cleveland Fed’s premier regional conference that explores solutions, at both the practitioner level and the policy level, to challenges that low- and moderate-income communities face. This biennial multiday event offers attendees the latest research and best practices through presentations by and outside-the-Beltway conversations with leading researchers, academics, practitioners, and policymakers.
Policy Summit 2019 explores the theme of economic mobility and resilience within and across urban, suburban, and rural communities in the United States. The event’s sessions will address questions such as the following: How are an individual’s prospects for getting ahead changing given growing regional disparities, persistent poverty, and racial segregation? Are place-based or people-based policies more effective, and in what contexts? What can policymakers and practitioners do to improve the likelihood that people, businesses, and communities are set up for long-term success in today’s marketplace?
Policy Summit 2019 will open with keynote speakers Dr. Raj Chetty and Dr. David Williams of Opportunity Insights, a research and policy institute dedicated to understanding why upward mobility and economic progress have stalled for so many US families. The event will close with a keynote by Dr. Loretta J. Mester, president and CEO of the Cleveland Fed.
