A long-standing goal of the Reinventing series is to create a dialogue that promotes research-informed practice and practice-informed research. We have once again partnered with the University of Pennsylvania’s Institute for Urban Research to include research in the majority of our sessions, and a forthcoming journal will highlight work from several thought leaders speaking at the conference.

New for 2016, we have added offsite experiential learning opportunities to enable you to spend more time examining the key topics of resident engagement or the Community Reinvestment Act. We have also organized three exceptional neighborhood revitalization tours. We are proud to share the great work underway in many parts of our city and introduce you to the leaders driving this positive change.
