Understanding Financial Health: Race and the Financial Lives of Young Adults and Students

When & Where

April 14, 2021
Noon to 1:30 PM EDT


For National Financial Literacy Month, our April FedTalk will invite public policy and education experts to discuss race and the financial lives of students and young adults (18-36 years old). They will explore the existing disparities in financial health outcomes and the unique challenges experienced by communities of color. They will also discuss the structural conditions that play a role in deciding what types of opportunities will be available to different groups of people and the implications financial literacy education has in narrowing the racial wealth gap.

A Q&A session will follow the discussion.
