Lacking wealth is one of the defining challenges of our time — and business leaders didn’t need COVID to reveal the stark financial inequities that exist for their workforces and customers. The private sector has a unique role to play in leading change in many areas: retirement benefits, health care, housing, hiring and wage practices, and where (and with whom) it chooses to invest its money. Join us for a conversation with financial-sector entrepreneurs, innovators, and civil rights leaders to hear about business and investment strategies that will — and won’t — help close the wide and deepening wealth divides across America. Lafayette Square Managing Director Don Baylor and Prudential Retirement Services President Dylan Tyson will join Georgette Dixon and Wole Coaxum for a discussion facilitated by the Institute’s Joanna Smith Ramani.
