Thursday, March 21, 2019
1:00pm - 3:00pm
Presenter: Achyuta Adhvaryu, Arnold M and Linda T Jacob Faculty Fellow, Assistant Professor of Business Economics, Stephen M Ross School of Business and Faculty Associate, Population Studies Center, Institute for Social Research
This workshop focuses on the work and research of development economist Dr. Achyuta Adhvaryu. While exploring what forces trap people in poverty, attendees will discuss the role the private sector can play in improving the welfare of low-income individuals. Learning about the ways women are marginalized socially and institutionally, participants will consider methods for intervention to unlock economic opportunity for women. Diving deeper, attendees will explore the impacts these interventions have on women and their families. While discussing Dr. Achyuta Adhvaryu’s inspiration for choosing his career path, attendees will learn methods to “shake the world” as Gandhi once said. A hands-on wellness activity will be presented by the CEW+ Inspire team to complement this workshop. The discussion will be followed by a networking reception.
