CEO has invited stakeholders across government, philanthropy, academia, business and consumer communities to implement Shared Prosperity Philadelphia and achieve a common understanding of Philadelphia’s poverty problem and each actor’s role in its ongoing solution.

The Five Shared Prosperity Working Groups:

  • Serve as the hub for continuous communication and mutual education about poverty in Philadelphia.
  • Act as the monitor of poverty trends and best practices.
  • Create and monitor a policy agenda to knock down systems-level barriers to opportunity, especially among our most disadvantaged citizens.
