Update on the State of Economic Mobility
Charlotte, NC 28202
In 2014, Charlotte was ranked last in economic mobility among America’s 50 largest cities. As a result, Opportunity Insights, Leading on Opportunity, Foundation For The Carolinas and other local organizations partnered to launch the Charlotte Opportunity Initiative, an effort to further explore Charlotte’s data to better understand the barriers many face.
Please join us on Nov. 19 at 6 p.m. for a virtual presentation of a new report detailing updated findings on the state of economic mobility in Charlotte/Mecklenburg County. We’ll also host a conversation with our partners to discuss policy implications and next steps.
