Emerging Scholars Pre-Conference Today at LBJ

The Institute for Research on Poverty (IRP) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison is collaborating with the University of Texas at Austin Center for Health and Social Policy (CHASP) to engage young, emerging scholars in conducting their best work on the broad topical question: How can we build economic self-sufficiency among working families and the disadvantaged, while simultaneously meeting the labor demand needs of employers, through policies and programs that increase labor market skills, employment, wages, and earnings?

CHASP is hosting the Emerging Scholars pre-conference today centered around this issue of building human capital and economic potential. CFRP's own Dr. Osborne is a discussant on a paper about what job characteristics of mothers of very young children value the most.
