Attend summit on Friday, learn about reducing poverty
Want to learn what works in reducing poverty and what you can do to help? Want to tour local organizations that show promise in reducing poverty among Coloradans and learn how they are doing it?
Then you should plan on attending Colorado 2019 Summit: Promising Practices to Reduce Poverty. The summit will be held on Friday, Oct. 19, at Infinity Park Event Center in Glendale.
The summit is the brainchild of the Colorado General Assembly's Economic Opportunity and Poverty Reduction Task Force. Our friends and colleagues at the Colorado Center on Law and Policy are helping to organize it.
Attendees will begin the morning by touring one of several local sites where organizations are having success in helping Coloradans move out of poverty.
The luncheon will feature a keynote address on Corporate Shared Values by Mark Kramer, co-founder and managing director of FSG and author of influential publications on shared value and collective impact. A workshop on "Collective Impact" led by Jennifer Splansky, senior consultant with FSG, will explore how this nationally popular strategy might work to accomplish poverty reduction goals in Colorado.
The Statewide Strategic Plan to Reduce Poverty will be released at the summit and the Promising Practices website will be launched. This website will allow you to find out what is working to reduce poverty in Colorado and how organizations are doing it. The organizations offering Promising Practices will be recognized during the summit.
