Careers in Poverty Research, Policy, and Practice

There are many different paths that can be followed in pursuing a career related to poverty research, policy, and program management. This event, sponsored by the Institute for Research on Poverty, is designed to promote awareness of the career opportunities open to undergraduates interested in poverty and inequality in the United States. It features a panel of leading policymakers, advisors, and activists, each of whom will discuss their career and school choices and answer questions from the audience. COWS’ Associate Director Laura Dresser is among the panelists.
