If you didn’t grow up in poverty, you may be unaware of the "hidden rules" that govern many aspects of life for the poor. People in poverty are often in survival mode, and support systems taken for granted in middle class and wealth are largely nonexistent. If your business, agency, or organization works with people from poverty, a deeper understanding of their challenges—and strengths—helps you partner with them to create opportunities for success.
Join us on Tuesday, May 16, as Ruby Payne will share from her book Bridges Out of Poverty and from her expertise on the mindsets of economic classes and how to work toward healthy, sustainable communities.
Registration starts at 6:30 p.m. at The Lerner. The first 100 registrants will receive a free, signed copy of Bridges Out of Poverty.
