#52: Rising Out of Poverty

A study shows 87% of students in poverty do not have any career aspirations and do not realize you can study and work towards a career. Todd and Evan talk with poverty expert Dr. Donna Beegle. The conversation goes beyond stereotypes to gain a better understanding how to combat poverty—for yourself and others. Dr. Beegle gives advice to students how to prepare for the world of work.

Dr. Donna Beegle is the president and founder of Communication Across Barriers, a consulting firm that works to increase communication across poverty, race, gender and generational barriers. She has adoctorate in education leadership from Portland State University.
