Please join us for the fourth Federal Reserve Education event in the Discussing Race and Inequality in the Classroom series. We’ve invited industry experts and well-known researchers and economists to share their views on how racial inequality impacts economic mobility and opportunity and the economy as a whole.

This free virtual event will describe COVID-19’s impact on economic well-being, with a special emphasis on how the pandemic has affected minority communities. The keynote presentation will be followed by a panel discussion on the factors driving wealth disparities among different racial groups, and possible solutions. The speakers will offer valuable insight into key issues affecting race relations and conversations today.

Teachers, students and professors are welcome to attend as we address income disparity, financial service inequity, generational wealth gaps and more. Learn more on these relevant topics and enhance students’ knowledge by registering for this special event today!

There is no cost to attend, but please register no later than 9 a.m. the day of the event, June 30. A video recording of the event will be available afterward.
