OpenXChange and the Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality invite members of the campus community to join a conversation with the Ford Foundation's Xavier (“Xav”) de Souza Briggs, moderated by David Grusky, Barbara Kimball Browning Professor in the School of Humanities and Sciences and Director of the Center on Poverty and Inequality.

XAVIER (XAV) DE SOUZA BRIGGS is vice president of the foundation’s Economic Opportunity and Assets program. He leads the foundation’s work promoting economic fairness, advancing sustainable development, and building just and inclusive cities in the United States, Latin America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. He also oversees the foundation’s regional programming in China, Indonesia, and India, Nepal and Sri Lanka. An award-winning author, commentator and educator, he has led groundbreaking research in economic opportunity, democracy and governance, segregation, and racial and ethnic diversity in cities and metropolitan regions. Xav’s books include The Geography of Opportunity (Brookings, 2005) and Democracy as Problem Solving: Civic Capacity in Communities across the Globe (MIT Press, 2008), which examines efforts in the U.S. and other democracies—Brazil, India and South Africa—to lead change at the local level. His latest book is Moving to Opportunity: The Story of an American Experiment to Fight Ghetto Poverty (Oxford, 2010).

The Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality is a program of the Institute for Research in the Social Sciences.
