2019 Shape of the Region Conference

March 7 @ 8:00 am - 11:45 am

Please join us for the 2019 Shape of the Region Conference, co-hosted by the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia, the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce, the Northern Virginia Regional Commission and the Northern Virginia Technology Council.
Our local economy continues to thrive. But our region, like the entire country, is experiencing a growing gulf between the have and the have nots, rising income inequality, and a lack of economic mobility that has developed in the past 50 years. It is a defining problem of our age, and everyone has a role to play in helping to solve it.
Inspired by the US Partnership on Mobility from Poverty, the 2019 Shape of the Region Conference will discuss strategies that each sector of society can deploy to achieve a more expanded, more inclusive economy that benefits us all.
Registration is $65 and includes continental breakfast.
