Generational Changes in Connecticut’s Workforce


  • Wade Gibson, Director of the Fiscal Policy Center, Connecticut Voices for Children
  • Estelle Sommeiller, Socioeconomist, Institute for Research in Economics/Social Sciences
  • Orlando Rodriguez, Senior Policy Fellow, Connecticut Voices for Children

As issues of poverty, family strength, and access to quality education shape the economic and social health of Connecticut, the future of our state’s workforce and fiscal stability depends on prudent policy decisions and strategic investments. Join staff from CT Voices for Children and Estelle Sommeiller, co-author of “The Increasingly Unequal States of America: Income Inequality By State, 1917-2011,” as we explore these important and timely issues, with a focus on Connecticut’s young people.

For the event, packages include savings for individuals, nonprofits, businesses and a pay-it-forward special for students or generous individuals who wish to purchase for a group.

Registration ends Friday, April 25, at midnight.
