BMO Public Lecture: Improving Equality of Opportunity
How can we improve economic opportunities for children growing up in low-income families? Raj Chetty, Stanford Economist, will discuss findings from the Equality of Opportunity Project. By using big data, Chetty will show how children’s opportunities to climb the income ladder vary substantially depending upon the neighborhood in which they grow up. This free lecture will start at 7 PM on Sept 12 at SFU’s Vancouver Campus. learn more →
