Are "Equity Districts" the New "Smart Cities"?

In a 2017 study by Northwestern University entitled “Income Segregation and The Rise of The Knowledge Economy,” it was determined that innovation density increases income segregation and economic immobility. So as cities become smarter and more innovative, it’s important they they create innovative models for equity districts to ensure that all of its citizens can participate in shared prosperity. This featured interactive panel will discuss what cities, developers and ecosystem builders can do to ensure this espoused equity for all.
