Standing in the Gap: Understanding the Facts and Impacts of the Racial Wealth Divide

Welcoming Webinar

Racial wealth inequality is a key driver for financial household insecurity among families of color. This webinar with Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED) explores the facts and impacts of the expanding racial wealth divide for communities of color as well as implications for partnerships and program design. We looked at data from CFED’s Assets & Opportunity Scorecard, Local Data Center, and select Racial Wealth Divide Data Profiles. We also discussed the findings from CFED and Institute for Policy Studies’ recent report on racial wealth inequality, The Ever-Growing Gap.
