About this conference
On May 7, The Atlantic will convene key voices behind urban transformation initiatives across the country to examine the most effective models for creating lasting solutions to complex social problems. While approaches differ from one community to the next, the most successful initiatives are setting ambitious goals to improve low income neighborhoods and increase economic mobility by working across sectors and developing partnerships that span education, housing, health care and workforce development.
Through one-on-one interviews, panel discussions and case study presentations from community leaders with proven track records of success, this program will explore what's needed to encourage and support these models, and take a closer look at what it takes to create and sustain collaborative efforts aimed at making cities work for all.
Since 1857, The Atlantic has helped shape the national debate on the most critical and contentious issues of our times, from politics, business, and the economy, to technology, arts, and culture. Through in-depth analysis in the monthly print magazine, complemented by up-to-the-minute insights delivered throughout the day on theatlantic.com, The Atlantic provides the nation’s thought leaders and professional class with forward-looking, fresh perspectives that provoke and challenge, define and affect the lives we’re living today, and give shape to the lives we will live tomorrow.
