The Federal Reserve will host its biennial community development research conference, “Renewing the Promise of the Middle Class,” on May 9-10 in Washington, D.C.
This conference series aims to bridge the gap between research, policy, and practice on key issues facing the country. The 2019 conference will focus on leading research about the factors affecting people’s ability to move into, and stay in, the middle class. The discussion will also focus on what the implications of the research might be for those working in public policy and community development.
The conference agenda features some of the nation’s foremost researchers and policy leaders. Keynote speakers include:
Jerome Powell, Chairman, Federal Reserve Board
Charles Evans, President, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago
Lael Brainard, Governor, Federal Reserve Board
Juan Salgado, Chancellor, City Colleges of Chicago and a 2015 MacArthur Fellow
