The racial wealth divide continues to persist across generations, driven by factors such as income, savings rates, and imbalances in household assets. Narrowing the racial wealth divide requires intentional, specific, targeted investments in BIPOC communities.

Join the National League of Cities’ Economic Opportunity and Financial Empowerment (EOFE) and Race, Equity, and Leadership (REAL) teams for the first part of a four-part Strategy Series on narrowing the racial wealth gap.

This first webinar will feature Jenn Steinfeld of NLC’s Entrepreneurship and Economic Development team and Rosanna Mulcahy of NLC’s Economic Opportunity and Financial Empowerment team speaking about how to use municipal procurement processes to support Minority- and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs) in order to shrink the racial wealth gap.
