Beth Babcock, PhD

Keynote Speaker

Elisabeth Babcock (Beth) is president and CEO of Economic Mobility Pathways (EMPath), an international charitable organization dedicated to creating new pathways to economic independence for low-income individuals and their families. EMPath uses its unique “action-tank” business model to design, build, and test new approaches for creating economic mobility and then share them with other organizations and governments.

EMPath’s applied research led to the development of its groundbreaking Mobility Mentoring® platform. Since its release in 2009, Mobility Mentoring® has been internationally recognized for creating significantly improved outcomes in earnings, educational attainment, and family stability in extremely low-income families.

Beth received her Master’s Degree from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and her PhD in non-profit strategy from Harvard’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. She has taught non-profit strategy and implementation at the graduate level for more than two decades at Harvard and Brandeis Universities.
