Breathing Life into Numbers

Measure of America authors, Sarah Burd-Sharps and Kristen Lewis will be giving a talk at Philanthropy New York Forum entitled Breathing Life into Numbers: Introducing a Human Index for Funders

Date: April 10, 2012
Time: 8:45 am – 10:00 am
Location: Philanthropy New York, 79 Fifth Avenue, 4th Floor, NYC

The America Human Development Index used by our friends at Measure of America has helped garner support for people-centered policies. It reflects the distribution of well-being and opportunity in America by bringing together health, education, and earnings indicators into a single number.

Join Measure of America Co-Directors Sarah Burd-Sharps and Kristen Lewis, and those with a keen interest in using the Index to address the challenges facing ordinary Americans, as we examine a new way to understand well-being and access to opportunity in America today.

Explore:

How the Index can be utilized to gain a better understanding of the root causes of socio-economic disparities.

How opportunity is distributed in America and which groups are surging ahead while others face the greatest risks.

What tangible steps can be taken, in today’s tight fiscal climate, to build an infrastructure of opportunity that serves a new generation of Americans.”
