      Poverty is more complex than ever. Families trapped at the bottom of the economic ladder must navigate moving rungs and recurring setbacks to move up. Every sector has a part to play in clearing pathways toward economic independence. The conference seeks to answer the following:
      1) What changes are happening in the world today that have significant import for the future of poverty disruption?
      2) What are the implications of these changes for the economic mobility of America’s workers?
      3) How do we adapt to these changes to strengthen our work?
