The summit brought together civic, business, philanthropy leaders and practitioners, advocates, and experts with members of the general public to share strategies for advancing equity in education, housing and economic mobility for communities of color and other marginalized groups. The overarching aims of this summit are to foster cross-sector dialogue and develop best practices that will contribute to systemic change in Seattle and Washington State, for a future where prosperity is broadly shared.
