County To Host Economic Mobility Summit On Sept. 28

.m. to 4 p.m., the Palm Beach County Citizens Advisory Committee and the Birth to 22 Alliance will host the “Securing Our Future Economic Mobility Summit” at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. Government, nonprofit, foundation and business leaders are invited to attend.

The goal of the summit is to bring system leaders together in support of those who are unemployed or underemployed. To facilitate opportunities to strengthen local plans, organizers will match local workshop presenters with national thought leaders with similar expertise.

Workshops will provide information about ways organizations can work collaboratively to support families as they advance economically. Sessions will focus on levers for upward economic mobility within the following systems: housing and homelessness, employment, child care, education, safety and justice, food and hunger, health and transportation.

During the summit, organizers will also report progress on the Securing Our Future Initiative; present findings from the Economic Mobility Report; share potential updates to the Health and Human Services Element of the county’s comprehensive plan; and engage system leaders in discussions about ways to improve health and human service supports to promote economic mobility.
