The Future of Economic Opportunity - This free forum is co-sponsored by Cook County, the South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association, Southwest Conference of Mayors, and Will County Governmental League

The opportunity to move up the economic ladder has been a cornerstone of the American Dream, yet research shows that fewer than 50 percent of Millennials will make more money than their parents do. Unequal access to education, employment, and critical resources is preventing some individuals from realizing their full potential—and, ultimately, limiting the region's growth and competitiveness.  How can metropolitan Chicago adapt to ensure that the American Dream is obtainable here, and that our economy is thriving between now and 2050?
