Nicki Ruiz de Luzuriaga, Vice President of Institutional Advancement at Economic Mobility Pathways, speaks with WorkingNation at ASU GSV Summit 2019 on the pathway out of poverty.

Nicki has worked at EMPath since 2009, focusing specifically on the interdependence of family members in moving out of poverty. She helped lead the development of EMPath’s Intergenerational Mobility Project and co-authored a brief on the theory and practice of intergenerational anti-poverty efforts.

Before joining EMPath, Nicki developed children’s programming at various for-profit and non-profit organizations. She holds a Master in Public Administration at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, where she was awarded a Gleitsman Fellowship through the Center for Public Leadership.

The ASU GSV Summit brought together the nation’s most committed leaders in business, education, nonprofits, government, and entertainment for the three-day conference. A collaboration between Arizona State University and Global Silicon Valley (GSV), the annual conference is the industry catalyst for elevating dialogue and driving action around raising learning and career outcomes through scaled innovation. 

WorkingNation set up its cameras at the Summit and interviewed the speakers and attendees about the important issues of education and workforce challenges. You can follow the conversation on our social media under the hashtag #WorkingNationOverheard.
