Transatlantic Roundtable: Black Equity, Wealth Creation, and Inequality Risk
24 February 2022, 2:00 pm–3:30 pm
The creation of Black wealth has both economic and ethical imperatives. The volatile impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the global economy has further highlighted the importance of creating resilient pathways to economic stability for individuals and communities. Yet disparities in access to capital continue to hinder the development of Black wealth in both the US and the UK.
This event is free.
This transatlantic panel will discuss the role that governments and policy-makers can play in providing access to capital, opportunity, and information to facilitate Black wealth creation and reduce inequalities.
