2015 Policy Summit on Housing, Human Capital, and Inequality

JUNE 18, 2015 - 9:00 AM to JUNE 19, 2015 - 1:30 PM ET

Pittsburgh, PA

The Policy Summit is a now-biennial forum that attracts an audience of several hundred academics, bankers, elected officials, funders, policymakers, and practitioners from across the eastern United States.

Sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland in partnership with the Philadelphia and Richmond Feds, the Policy Summit is a forum for outside-the-Beltway policy discussions on issues that impact the regions represented by the Federal Reserve’s Third, Fourth, and Fifth Districts—all of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, North and South Carolina, Washington, D.C., and parts of New Jersey and Kentucky.

This year, the Policy Summit will convene in Pittsburgh, a city known as much for its vibrant resurgence as its industrial past. Now boasting strong economic growth and an increasing share of highly educated workers, Pittsburgh is an example of how diversified strengths—healthcare, education, and industry—helped it emerge from the recent financial and housing crises relatively unscathed. A breakfast session on Friday, June 19, will feature some of the successes of this Rust Belt city.
