We are thrilled to announce that Michael McAfee will join us in Dallas to address our biennial convening, The Time is Now: Building an Economy that Works for Everyone.
Michael is the president and CEO of PolicyLink, a national research and action institute focused on advancing racial and economic equity. To advance equity, PolicyLink advocates for groundbreaking policy change that enables everyone, especially people of color, to be economically secure, live in healthy communities of opportunity, and benefit from a just society.
Under Michael’s leadership, PolicyLink emerged as a national leader in building cradle-to-career systems that ensure children and youth in our nation’s most distressed communities have a pathway into the middle class. His partnership with local leaders, in more than 60 communities in 27 states and the District of Columbia, contributed to significant improvements in the educational and developmental outcomes for more than 300,000 children and helped attract public and private investments exceeding $1 billion.
As we strive to build an economy that works for everyone, racial equity is a critical part of the conversation. We know that Michael will challenge our preconceptions about the role of equity in the workforce field. We are so excited to have him share his expertise and experiences with all of us at the Time is Now.
We cannot wait for you to join us in Dallas on June 25-27 for two days of learning, networking, and sharing.
