IREM February Luncheon: Celebrating Diversity
Featuring Stephen L. Klineberg, Ph.D. Founding Director, Kinder Institute for Urban Research and Rice University Emeritus Professor.
Celebrating Houston’s Diversity as it sits on the Cusp of a Changing America – Tracking Responses to the Economic and Demographic Transformations through 38 years of data. Few cities exemplify more clearly than Houston the trends that are refashioning the social and political landscape across America. The new high-tech, knowledge-based, global economy is generating mounting inequalities based primarily on access to high-quality education and technical skills. At the same time, an epic transformation is underway, as this city and country, once predominantly composed of European nationalities, becomes a microcosm of all the world’s ethnicities and religions. And as urban regions compete for the most gifted “knowledge workers” in the new economy, quality-of-place attributes increasingly determine the fates of cities.
Dr. Stephen Klineberg has been shaping local thought on the ongoing trends in the Houston metropolitan region for almost forty years. He has tracked the economic outlooks, demographic patterns, experiences and beliefs of area residents during a period of remarkable change.
