2020 Conference

EMPath's biennial conference examined the future of poverty disruption with engaging speakers from a wide range of sectors. Nearly 500 people from around the globe came together virtually to discuss new strategies for disrupting poverty. Together we sought to answer three questions:

 

What changes are happening in the world today that have significant import for the future of poverty disruption? What are the implications of these changes for the economic mobility of those who have been stuck at the bottom? How do we adapt to these changes to strengthen our work?  

 

Over the course of a week, dozens of sessions featured world-class speakers discussing what’s to come across a variety of topics, from the future of work and philanthropy to considerations for narrative change about poverty.
