12:00PM | Carney 437

Purpose Built Communities (PBC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving racial equity, economic mobility and health outcomes in communities across the country. It serves as a bridge, connecting community leaders with resources and partner organizations that share a vision to make holistic, at-scale investments in defined neighborhoods to achieve excellent and equitable outcomes for the people who live there.

PBC's collaboration with innovative thinkers is driven by a collective desire to advance communities, improve the lives of residents of neighborhoods made vulnerable, end a cycle of intergenerational poverty, and set a new course for cities across the country.

Lunch session will feature CEO Carol Naughton, Sr. VP Michelle Matthews, and VP, Educational Programs Catalina Sibilsky who will discuss their work and engage in dialogue with students.
