Several hundred policymakers, community development practitioners, academics, and funders will gather to discuss workforce development, affordable housing, and other issues of vital interest to our communities. The Policy Summit is sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland in partnership with the Federal Reserve Banks of Philadelphia and Richmond.

The Policy Summit features 18 different sessions and more than 50 distinguished presenters.

The 12th Policy Summit on Housing, Human Capital, and Inequality will bring together several hundred policymakers, community development practitioners, academics, and funders on June 18-19, 2015, at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh to discuss issues of vital interest to our communities. The forum is sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland in partnership with the Federal Reserve Banks of Philadelphia and Richmond.

For the first time, the Policy Summit will convene in Pittsburgh, a city known as much for its vibrant resurgence as its industrial past. The city’s renaissance will be the focus of one of the 18 conference sessions, while another will examine the revitalization of Pittsburgh’s East Liberty neighborhood. A third session will highlight innovative approaches to community and economic development being used by Pittsburgh and by Philadelphia, on the opposite side of the state.

Loretta J. Mester, president and chief executive officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, will close the event with a luncheon keynote address on June 19.

Check out the agenda, featuring more than 50 distinguished presenters, and register today for this important policy forum.

The registration fee is $195; $145 for nonprofits. Members of the news media may attend free of charge, but must register in advance. (Journalists will need to select “Check” as the payment option and "Media" as the attendee type in order to register, but will not be billed. Those interested in joining the optional tour of Pittsburgh’s East Liberty neighborhood on June 18 will need to register for that separately. Please note that seats for the tour are limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis.)
