Expanding Opportunity in Oklahoma: Interview & Video

Last week, we hosted a panel discussion in Oklahoma City titled “Expanding Opportunity in Oklahoma: Earned Success and the Paths to Prosperity” as part of our Well-Being Initiative. In an interview with regional blog, The Okie, Alison Acosta Fraser, managing director, policy and research at the Charles Koch Institute, elaborated on the Initiative’s purpose and goals:

“We have been very encouraged with the substantive and robust discussion that each event has generated, particularly among groups that don’t see eye to eye on every issue. We believe our forums have been calling attention to critical issues that affect well-being and demonstrating that there is common ground and solutions to be found.”
