New Hope in the Fight against Inequality

Organized by Harris Public Policy

Join us this UChicago Giving Day for a timely conversation with three of Harris’ very own: Professor Chris Berry, Associate Professor Damon Jones, and Jennifer Tescher, MPP'96.

Each, through the lens of their own important work, will explore barriers that worsen inequality and some promising, new approaches — spanning government and the private sector — that can help make progress on these persistent, far-reaching challenges.

Join our three distinguished speakers as they ponder how national and local government, as well as private sector responses, can make a difference. The evening will conclude with a reception where attendees can continue the conversation.
