Salon on Mobility in America, Bay Area

In-Person Event | Bay Area
Wednesday, April 17, 2024
6:00pm – 9:00pm PT


Location information will be provided in a separate email once your registration has been confirmed.

The American dream, often associated with financial success and personal fulfillment, is fundamentally linked to social and economic mobility. Yet, achieving it is complex and challenging. In our discussion, we will explore the critical roles that education, cultural influences, policy-making, and social connectivity play in shaping success in America.
Our exploration will focus on pivotal questions such as: How do education and government policies influence social and economic mobility? What role do our personal networks – including friendships, family, and neighbors – play in creating opportunities? Moreover, we’ll examine the impact of technology and innovation, and how it is impacting mobility in America.
Most importantly, this dialogue will intertwine with our personal narratives. We will reflect on the people, policies, resources, and experiences that have impacted our own lives and careers. By doing so, we aim to explore how our individual stories are intertwined with broader mobility trends. This personal perspective promises to provide invaluable insights, showcasing how the lives we’ve lived, the lessons we’ve learned, and the challenges we’ve overcome can teach us broader lessons about mobility in America.

Light bites and refreshments will be provided.
