Men, Women, and the Racial Wealth Gap

Meeting Description:
While the gender pay gap is a serious problem that needs to be addressed, we must also look at the intersection of gender, race, and wealth to get a clear picture of how people of color are faring in today's economy. Join us for a webinar discussing the economic challenges faced by men and women of color, typically caused by a system that leads to racial and gender inequality.
