Once a year, Envision Utah hosts the Common Good Awards: a chance to recognize individuals and organizations who are doing great things to help make our communities a better place.
We normally love to get together to mix and mingle in person, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we've decided it best to host our event online. But don’t worry—we’ve still got an amazing speaker and two stellar Common Good Awards winners. And you can still even get a lunch out of the event!
Scroll down to choose your ticket package and register for the event. Once you register, you'll receive a confirmation with the webinar link. If you choose a lunch option, you'll receive your DoorDash code(s) the week of the event.
We're excited to announce that our speaker this year is Nathaniel Hendren, Professor of Economics at Harvard University and a Founding Co-Director of Opportunity Insights.
In 2019, Nathaniel was awarded the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) having been nominated by the National Science Foundation. In his ongoing work with Opportunity Insights, he seeks to develop scalable policy solutions that will empower families throughout the United States to rise out of poverty and achieve better life outcomes.
Nathaniel's talk at the Common Good Awards will focus on upward mobility in Utah, what we know about policies that promote upward mobility, and the long-term impact the COVID-19 pandemic will have on upward mobility for low-income children especially.
