About This Event
The Washington Center for Equitable Growth hosted its inaugural grantee conference on Wednesday, September 21, 2016, in Washington, DC. The conference was an opportunity for grantees to meet Equitable Growth staff, members of our Steering Committee, the policy community, and, importantly, each other.
Following the conference, Equitable Growth hosted a cocktail hour and dinner at Elizabeth’s on L (1341 L Street, NW, Washington, DC). The dinner included conference participants as well as members of the policy and funder communities, and select members of the press.
