(Cross-posted from the Stanford Social Innovation Review)

In this recording from the recent Frontiers of Social Innovation conference, Angela Glover Blackwell (PolicyLink Founder and CEO) talks about why, for United States to grow and prosper, policymakers must adopt new approaches to produce good jobs, ensure reinvestment in low-income communities, upgrade the education and skills of an increasingly diverse workforce, and create opportunities for everyone to apply their talents. She also shows how equity, inclusion, and fairness are no longer just moral issues but also economic imperatives: Equity is the superior growth model.
