Fed Hosts Webinar on Racial Wealth Inequality in 21st Century

Interested in exploring the implications of racial wealth inequality in the United States? As the racial wealth gap increases over time, it becomes more difficult for families nationwide to develop assets to offer better opportunities for future generations. Join us on July 16 for a stimulating one-hour webinar that will focus on racial wealth inequality and how it affects millions of families across the United States.

During the webinar, speakers will discuss findings from three different sources: results from the National Asset Scorecard for Communities of Color (NASCC) survey; a report from the Boston Fed, The Color of Wealth; and an essay on race, ethnicity, and wealth from the St. Louis Fed.

The webinar will feature speakers Bill Emmons, Bryan Noeth, and Ana Patricia Muñoz of the Federal Reserve as well as scholars William Darity and Darrick Hamilton of Duke University and The New School, respectively. During the webinar, you'll have an opportunity to ask questions of the presenters.

This webinar is part of the Federal Reserve's Connecting Communities series, a national initiative intended to provide community development practitioners, financial institution representatives, policymakers, and others with timely information on emerging and important community development topics.
