This year, our summit will feature a keynote presentation by internationally acclaimed economist Raj Chetty, detailing his data on growing Richmond’s economic mobility and equality of opportunity. Dr. Chetty is the William A. Ackman Professor of Public Economics at Harvard University, as well as the Director of Opportunity Insights, an organization dedicated to using “big data” to illustrate how children from disadvantaged backgrounds can be provided with more opportunities for future success.
In addition, the “Shared Values in Action Summit” will include talks and interactive dialogues with a robust group of local and regional civic thought leaders, all focused on creating a more connected, healthy, prosperous and equitable community throughout the Richmond region.
Attendees of the “Shared Values in Action Summit” will also participate in an afternoon “Activation Session,” with opportunities to discuss and share their personal priorities for advancing equity and economic mobility in Richmond, along with additional dialogue designed to enhance collaborative efforts.
Participation in the “Shared Values in Action Summit” is free of charge, though advance reservations are required. Click here to register.
