Summary

Hosted by the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation: By reading the news, you might think that Central Texas is a booming, affluent metropolis. But the reality is that four of five counties in the area have higher rates of poverty than both the state of Texas and national averages across the country. So how do we solve for this? We are focusing on several paths out of poverty for our community 1. Bridging academic and non-academic issues for our children 2. defining pipelines to career readiness so students are ready to enter the workforce and 3. understanding and acting upon the data to make the greatest impact. Hear about how our growing city is at the forefront of solving these problems, and how we’re doing it.
