Understanding Poverty Workshop
Mon, July 24, 2017, 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM MST
If you or your organization works with people from poverty, only a deeper understanding of their challenges— and strengths—will help you partner with them to create opportunities for success. This workshop provides new insights to help you understand the experience of being chronically under-resourced so that you can build greater effectiveness in your work.
Understanding Poverty means understanding the impact of chronic instability, scarcity, and stress, as well as how environments and systems impact the larger picture. Participants will examine economic class and its impact our lives and institutions, review tools for systemic change and learn about the Getting Ahead in a Just Gettin’ By World workshop. Ideas and tools are drawn from the Bridges Out of Poverty framework, new research on scarcity, behavioral science, and other resources.
The $50 fee includes snacks, drinks, lunch, and materials.
