Majora Carter Book Discussion: Reclaiming Your Community
Please join us for a discussion of Reclaiming Your Community with the author, Majora Carter. We were honored to hear from Majora as our 2023 ReFrame Conference Keynote Speaker and look forward to an insightful discussion about the strategies presented in her book!
Reclaiming Your Community: You Don't Have to Move Out of Your Neighborhood to Live in a Better One explores how we can address the problem of persistent poverty in low-status communities differently, and slow down the brain-drain that cripples local economic progress.
Just like successful companies have talent-retention strategies, Majora Carter argues that these communities need to do the same. Majora Carter shows how brain drain cripples low-status communities and maps out a development strategy focused on talent retention to help them break out of economic stagnation.
