Living Cities will host our fourth Twitter Chat on #DisruptingInequality.


Tomorrow, August 13th at 1pm Eastern Time, Living Cities will host our fourth Twitter Chat on #DisruptingInequality. The chat, Disrupting the Flow of Resources, will be co-hosted by Eileen Neely (@EileenNeely), our Director of Capital Innovation. During the chat, we’ll discuss different impact investment models and explore how innovative uses of capital can help improve the lives of low-income people.


We invite you and your organizations to participate in tomorrow’s Twitter Chat. Living Cities will moderate the chat via our Twitter handle, @Living_Cities, and the Hashtag #DisruptingInequality. You can also follow Eileen with @EileenNeely.

Over the course of an hour, we will pose a series of questions about the state of inequality and the role the capital innovation plays in disrupting the issue. Participants will have 10 minutes after each question to share their thoughts, feedback, and other relevant information before we move onto the next question. At the conclusion of the hour, all participants will be invited to share their final ideas.
