5/8/17: Poverty and Employment Panel Discussion

Nashville is a city on a meteoric rise, but poverty is a problem that still affects a large number of families.  The cycle of poverty starts at birth and lasts a lifetime for too many Nashvillians.  One of the biggest challenges that people living in poverty face is overcoming barriers to employment. Our panel will lead us through a discussion of what these three experts see and what is being done to address the issue.

Panelists are:

Eric Cole, Director, Mayor’s Office of Economic Opportunity & Empowerment

Marsha Edwards, CEO, Marth O’Bryan Center

Dr. Rhonda Switzer-Nadasdi,CEO Interfaith Dental Clinic

Moderated by David Plazas, Opinion Editor, The Tennessean
