Mark Joseph, the Leona Bevis/Marguerite Haynam Associate Professor in Community Development and founding director of the National Initiative on Mixed Income Communities (NIMC), and Amy Khare, research assistant professor at the Mandel School and the research director for NIMC, gave a talk at Harvard University Friday, March 2. Joseph also is a faculty associate at the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development.
The event, hosted by Harvard University Graduate School of Design, was co-sponsored by the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies and the Office of Communications. Joseph and Khare focused on their work examining the cost and consequences of racial segregation and concentration of poverty and affluence. They discussed their past efforts at mixed-income development in Chicago, San Francisco and other markets, and introduced their new ideas about the future of inclusionary housing.
