Policy Pub: “Place-based Economic Development: Who benefits?”

Policy Pub is a recurring series of plain-language talks by faculty of the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy on issues that affect everyone, with a Q&A/dialogue session following the brief presentation. The series continues this fall with a virtual "Pubinar" format that allows participants to access the presentation and discussion from their own homes.

Assistant Professor of Urban and Regional Planning Minjee Kim talks about place-based initiatives, an economic development strategy that identifies communities in need of better access to capital and offers incentives to stimulate investor and lender activities. Kim will compare initiatives from the 1994 Enterprise Zone to the 2017 Opportunity Zone to discuss the equity implications of these federal programs.

Unlike Zoom meetings where every participant is visible to all others "in the room," the webinar format features a moderator and a presenter on screen, sharing visual materials related to the topic of the night. 

Attendees can submit questions or comments through a written chat option to interact with the facilitator, speaker and other attendees.
