The gap between the rich and poor continues to grow.  Upward mobility and the ability to achieve "The American Dream" has become more about where you live than good old fashioned hard work. Statistics are particularly grim in the Queen City.  Recent surveys confirm that the odds of climbing out of poverty in the Charlotte metro area are among the lowest in the nation.  In other words, if you're born in the bottom 5%, your odds of climbing to the top 5% are less than 5%.
 
Join us to hear from experts in the government, nonprofit and healthcare sectors about obstacles to upward mobility and how we can combat them to reverse the trend.

Panelists Include:

Rebecca Riccio, Professor, College of Social Science and Humanities, Northeastern University

Leslie Winner, Executive Director, Z. Smith Reynolds
