The US Partnership on Mobility from Poverty was tasked with answering one bold question: What would it take to dramatically increase mobility from poverty? Specifically, the Partnership was asked to generate ideas for investment by philanthropy and the public sector that could make a difference.
Partnership executive director Nisha Patel will share key insights from the Partnership’s work, including a new definition of mobility from poverty—one that goes beyond a foundation of economic success to include the principles of power and autonomy and being valued in community—and five interconnected strategies that drive these core principles.
