JPMCI Data Dialogue:How COVID-19 Could Widen Racial Gaps
Millions of families have been impacted by COVID-19, and initial data show health and economic impacts have been unevenly distributed across demographic groups. JPMC Institute research has documented large racial gaps in financial outcomes and shown Black and Hispanic families have lower incomes and fewer liquid assets relative to White families, and they will likely bear the brunt of the economic crisis. Understanding the disproportionate economic impacts of the pandemic will be key to targeting aid and promoting inclusive recovery.
Join us for a virtual panel discussion with:
Marc Morial, President of the National Urban League
Michael McAfee, President & CEO of PolicyLink
Jessica Fulton, Vice President at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies
Fiona Greig, Director of Consumer Research at the JPMC Institute.
Panelists will discuss the economic impact of COVID-19 on minority communities, targeted financial support for families, and what can be done to promote inclusive recovery.
