"The Geography of Inequality: Local Governments and Community Well-Being across America" - Linda Labao is a professor in Rural Sociology, Sociology, and Geography at The Ohio State University's School of Environment and Natural Resources

Labao's work focuses on how changes in industry and agriculture, as well as governments, have an impact on communities, households, and individuals. She will discuss geographic disparities in poverty and privilege and how local governments can help reduce inequality and ensure public well-being. Lobao has been a faculty member at Ohio State since 1986 and has served as chair of the rural sociology graduate program since 2005.
