Ep. 60 - Sarah Rosen Wartell: Elevate the Debate

Sarah Rosen Wartell: Elevate the Debate Ep. 60 - Sarah Rosen Wartell has articulated a strategy for Urban: elevate the debate. She is the public policy executive and housing markets expert who serves as president of the Urban Institute, a nonpartisan social and economic research and policy organization whose more than 550 researchers, experts, and other staff believe in the power of evidence to improve lives and strengthen communities.  In 2012, Sarah Rosen Wartell became the third president of the Urban Institute since it was founded in 1968. She feels Urban can elevate the debate by:

  • Bringing more of its insights from research to federal, state, and local government and practice
  • Becoming a leader in research communications and data visualization
  • Undertaking an ambitious program of business systems and technology modernization.
