Economic And Educational Segregation In Our City: Changing The Future Of San Antonio
Another Superb Educational Program – Economic Development Part II
At the last Speakers Series we learned about creative economic development and what San Antonio needs to do to ensure a sound economy. This month’s program will cover how our city's long history of economic and educational segregation affects economic development. It is going to be an exciting and educational Speakers Series!
The keynote speaker is Dr. Christine Drennon, Associate Professor, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Trinity University. Dr. Drennon is an acknowledged expert on this topic. Her academic background in Urban Studies, extensive local research and ground-level field work, will provide us a contextual understanding of the “Economic and Educational Segregation” challenges facing San Antonio today. Dr. Drennon will speak to the economic impact that policies and practices have made and their consequences down to zip code levels and obviously, to the people living in them for years. We live in an area multiple studies have identified as one of the most economically segregated cities in the nation. How did we get here, what has happened, and now what? Learn more about this critical topic and experience the insights from this local leader.
The program begins at 4:00p followed by Q & A from 5:00 - 5:30p and then the reception/social from 5:30-7:00p.
As usual, our caterer will provide delicious hors d’oeuvres along with a selection of liquid refreshments.
It is going to be an exciting event!!
