Policy Insights 2016: Conference Workshop Will Discuss Promising Ways to Invest in Our Children’s Future

Strong state revenues provide an opportunity for California to make investments that pave the way for more broadly shared economic growth. Research shows that investing in children, particularly early in their lives, can improve their life chances and allow them to more fully contribute to our economy and communities when they grow up.

What are some options for making this kind of investment? A workshop at Policy Insights 2016, the Budget Center’s annual conference, will look at a number of promising investments that research shows can expand opportunities for children and families and strengthen our state’s future. Panelists for this session are:

  • Sarah Crow, Vice President, Policy and Evaluation, The Opportunity Institute
  • Jenny Kattlove, Senior Director, Programs, The Children’s Partnership
  • Moira Kenney, Executive Director, First 5 Association of California

We hope you can join us at Policy Insights on March 9, 2016, at the Sacramento Convention Center. Our conference will feature a keynote from renowned Stanford economist Raj Chetty and a variety of other timely sessions on tax and budget policy, health, education, and much more. For an updated list of panelists, visit our registration page.

Early-bird registration ends Friday, February 19, 2016, so register today.
