Event Aims to Leverage ‘i3’ Competition Momentum

Said Mary:

I’ve written a lot of grants in my life, and no one has ever said, ‘Well, you didn’t get it, but here is the chance to talk to a large and deep group of policymakers, grantmakers, the for-profit world. … Let’s have a conversation and see where your ideas and your practice can move,’” said Mary Walsh, the executive director of City Connects, a Boston-based organization that promotes the integration of academics with support services.

Stay tuned for updates from the Forum on Thursday and Friday, or come visit us in booth 201! We’ll be updating via Twitter @CityConnects using the hashtag #EdInno.
