Conversation on End Poverty Day: How can we break the cycle?

October 17, 2017 | 11:00 to 12:15 ET, 15:00 to 16:15 GMT
Preston Auditorium, World Bank Headquarters, Washington DC

In nearly every country, those born into poor families are likely to stay poor. To end poverty, we must break down the barriers that are preventing many from moving up the economic ladder. Join us on End Poverty Day as we take stock of the world's progress on poverty reduction, and look ahead at the challenges the world faces on the road to 2030. This interactive discussion will center on some of the early findings from an upcoming report Fair Progress: Educational Mobility Around the World, which looks at economic mobility across generations and why that matters for improving lives, reducing inequality, and promoting growth. A panel of experts will share their viewpoints and ideas around the mission that unites us - ending poverty and creating opportunity for all.
