Event Details

As income inequality continues to plague Boston and other major cities in the US, the question is not just how we got here, but what are the impacts to both society and the individual - and what can we do about it? Join us for a discussion about:

  • How income inequality impacts access to opportunities
  • Programs and policies to reduce and eliminate inequalities
  • What you can do as an individual to address this injustice

We welcome to lead this discussion:

  • Mary Jo Bane, Harvard Kennedy School Thornton Bradshaw Professor of Public Policy and Management and formerly Assistant Secretary for Children and Families at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
  • John F. Barros, City of Boston, Chief of Economic Development
  • Deborah Kincade Rambo, President and CEO of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Boston
