Bold Ideas for Economic Equity: Navigating Challenges to Win Once in a Century Change

Victoria Mintzer May 19, 2021

In 2020, the US discussion on how we achieve economic equity went through an unprecedented paradigm shift. Long standing barriers to how we approach economic opportunity and equity were cast aside – in some cases by force, and in some cases by necessity to keep our society and economy functioning. Across all sectors, leaders, innovators and policy makers understand that the new rules written on government spending and direct cash payments, and the new expectations codified as norms, on investing in people and communities of color, present a once in a century opportunity to take unprecedented strides in how we foster more economic and racial equity in the United States 

Despite the window of opportunity, there are many obstacles ahead. This panel will explore bold new ideas that are now part of the mainstream dialogue on how the policies of governments, corporations and philanthropy can and should create opportunity and right the wrongs on past inequities – and the challenges to bringing these ideas to fruition 



Meta Themes

  • Equity & Inclusion

  • Social Entrepreneurship


Purpose and Desired Outcome

With this panel, we hope to surface opportunities that were not possible, before the pandemic and current moment of racial reckoning, to increase racial and economic equity in a lasting and meaningful way.
