How can we improve socio-economic mobility in Michigan? Socio-economic mobility refers to the capacity of a person to move upward in social class and economic viability. Michigan is reassessing strategies for building socio-economic mobility among those living in communities most in need. We know that social skills, academic success, and employment opportunities are key to moving a person forward. However, strategizing access to and acceleration of related opportunities for those most in need, and especially for those most challenged by a childhood in poverty, is much needed.
This forum will consider policy and program strategies that improve on the socio-economic mobility of individuals and families who are striving for economic security.
