Keynote Address: Demographic Trends that Will
Transform North Carolina
James H. Johnson Jr., PhD, director of the Urban Investment Strategies Center at the University of North Carolina Kenan Flagler Business School, Chapel Hill
Wondering how changing demographics will impact housing needs and opportunities? James Johnson will discuss what demographic shifts are expected, including the continued “browning” and “greying” of America. He’ll share how these changes are expected to transform social, economic and political institutions and the potential impact on affordable housing development in North Carolina.
The William R. Kenan Jr. Distinguished Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, Johnson is well-known for his research on community and economic development, the effects of demographic changes on the U.S. workplace, urban poverty and public policy in urban America, and workforce diversity issues.
