How improving literacy levels can shift the needle on poverty reduction

8 September 2021

Check out our first episode of Let's Talk Poverty. VCC's Jaclyn Silbernagel sits down with Berniece Gowan, Calgary Learns literary specialist, to discuss why literacy matters and why taking a human-centred approach is so important.

You'll learn more about how literacy impacts poverty, how literacy levels can influence income levels, employment and participation in society, and gain insights from remote learning experiences over the last year.
