At OneSouthCarolina 2014 we continued the rhetoric-free discussion from 2012 and 2013 to consider how more South Carolinians can participate in an economy which conventional measures indicate is strengthening, but which seems to be leaving many South Carolinians behind. How can the growing number of people in South Carolina who live in poverty improve their economic status? How can an improving economy drive South Carolinians’ economic mobility, which is among the lowest in the nation? How can growth on Wall Street and Main Street translate to greater prosperity for all?
In addition to powerful speakers and the serious exploration of issues critical to the state’s progress, DLI graduates reconnected with classmates and forge new ties with other Riley Fellows from throughout the state.
