The Social Development Commission and its coalition partners will host the 2021 Summit on Poverty from Oct. 19-21 at the Wisconsin Center, 400 W. Wisconsin Ave.
The goal of the conference is to expand learning, engagement and advocacy surrounding poverty by providing virtual and in-person access to community action agencies, human service, government and education professionals nationwide.
The theme of this year’s summit is “Realities, Revelations, Reflections & Recovery: Surviving & Thriving Through the Year 2020.”
Faculty and staff advancing relevant research or programming are encouraged to submit a proposal for the conference. Proposals are due July 16.
Those with questions should contact Dr. Dan Bergen, executive director of community engagement in the Office of Economic Engagement.
