As part of its mission to support tribal economic prosperity, the Center for Indian Country Development (CICD) at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis conducts and supports policy-relevant research on key questions that matter for Indian Country. We invite you to join us December 1–2 for an open discussion of new insights and opportunities at CICD’s annual research summit. The theme of this year’s summit is Unlocking Our Full Economic Potential.
The summit is intended for anyone who cares about better research that can help tribes achieve their economic and social objectives. Join tribal leaders, social science researchers, policymakers, and others as we learn about and discuss the latest research that can help tribal economies flourish. Even if you can’t attend the entire event, we welcome your participation.
Researchers will briefly present their findings in an accessible way, with tribal leaders and practitioners giving their reactions, followed by panel discussions. In addition, researchers will identify what policymakers can learn from the research evidence, and tribal leaders will explain what they’d like to know from future research. If you’re interested in submitting a research paper for the summit, learn more in our call for papers.
Follow the link below to register early. A detailed agenda and list of speakers will be shared here in the coming weeks. We hope you’ll join us and contribute your perspectives to this important conversation.
