Our final Woven Together Learning Series, which involves hearing from national experts around each of the Foundation’s five new priorities, focused on Overcoming Persistent Poverty with Laura Moore, Deputy Policy Director at Opportunity Insights.

Opportunity Insights works with stakeholders across the country to develop scalable policies that empower families to rise out of poverty and achieve better life outcomes.

Ms. Moore brought us on a “deep dive” into the fifth priority of our new ten-year long strategic plan by bringing to the forefront the geography of upward mobility and how that is not only impacting our nation, but how it looks in our own backyard.
