About the Event

The Ultimate Economic Multiplier: Closing Racial Wealth Gaps

SPEAKER: Duwain Pinder, co-author, The Economic Impact of Closing the Racial Wealth Gap (McKinsey & Company, Aug. 2019)

The persistent racial wealth gap in the United States is limiting economic opportunity for black Americans and other communities of color, as well as economic growth in the United States, overall. New research by McKinsey & Company quantifies the impact of closing the gap and identifies key sources of this socioeconomic inequity.

Join us on January 21, 2020 to hear Duwain Pinder share findings from the research, The Economic Impact of Closing the Racial Wealth Gap (McKinsey & Company, Aug. 2019), illuminating the impacts of the racial wealth gap and the profound benefits to our economy, communities of color, and country when we close it.

Immediately following Duwain’s presentation, we’ll feature a local reaction panel. Moderated by Tawanna Black, founder and CEO of the Center for Economic Inclusion, the panel will discuss the local implications and opportunities of this research.

Panelists: René E. Isuk, founder and president, ProsperLink, LLC; Audrey Lucas, senior partner, McKinsey & Company; David McGee, executive director, Build Wealth, MN, Inc.; Neeraj Mehta, director of learning, McKnight Foundation; and Samuel Yamoah, associate partner, McKinsey & Company.
