Humans make sense of the world through narrative. But the stories we tell can often be false; full of misinformation and biases that reinforce harmful beliefs, attitudes, and stereotypes. Some of the most pervasive and false narratives are about poverty. They shape public discourse on social policy and result in policies and programs that hurt those experiencing poverty. To unlock the political will to promote more effective and generous social policy and truly tackle inequality, poverty narratives must be retold.
In this webinar, ideas42, a nonprofit that applies behavioral science to social problems, will discuss place-based projects aimed at shifting harmful and false narratives about poverty and accompanying research on how to measure narrative shifts. This presentation will be thought-provoking for those undertaking narrative change efforts as well as practitioners who work with clients experiencing financial hardship.
