Event Details

“The Ultimate Economic Multiplier: Closing Racial Wealth Gaps”
Speaker: Duwain Pinder, Engagement Manager, McKinsey & Company; 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, and limiting U.S. economic growth. New research by McKinsey & Company quantifies the impact of closing the gap and identifies key sources of this socioeconomic inequity.

The Center for Economic Inclusion invites you to hear McKinsey & Company’s Duwain Pinder share findings from this new research, which illuminates the impacts of the racial wealth gap and profound benefits to our economy, communities of color, and country when we close it.

Following Duwain’s presentation, a local reaction panel, moderated by Tawanna Black (founder and CEO, Center for Economic Inclusion), will discuss the local implications and opportunities based on the research.

Panelists: René E. Isuk, founder and president, ProsperLink, LLC; David McGee, executive director, Build Wealth, MN, Inc.; and Neeraj Mehta, director of learning, McKnight Foundation.
