On Thursday, August 16th at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time (2:00 Central, 1:00 Mountain, 12:00 Pacific) @MITCoLab will host a Twitter chat on equity as a growth model in the United States. @MITCoLab will interview @PolicyLink on:
– The relationship between equity and growth
– How demographic change impacts our economic future
– Key strategies for growing the U.S. economy
This #citychat is a chance to delve in to PolicyLink’s recent report, America’s Tomorrow: Equity as the Superior Growth Model, which argues:
An-equity-driven growth model would bring together two agendas that have traditionally been separate: the agenda to grow new jobs and bolster long-term competitiveness, and the agenda to ensure that all – especially low-income people and people of color – have the opportunity to benefit from and co-create that growth.
Come to this #citychat with your ideas; your opinions; and examples of unique, emerging, and local strategies for economic growth.
It’s easy to join the Twitter chat. Just follow #citychat on Twitter from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. EST on Thursday, August 16th. You can pipe in with your own opinions and ideas as the chat rolls along. Even if you don’t have a Twitter account, you can watch the conversation unfold here.
UPDATE: The transcript for this chat is now available on Storify.
