Inclusive Growth in St. Louis Series: Supporting Inclusive Households

Thursday, December 10, 2020 | 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

Virtual Event

Household financial situations play a significant role in individual, community and economic growth. In St. Louis and other cities across the United States, some resources and strategies meant to help households experience economic mobility instead, systematically exclude people.

Join us virtually for Supporting Inclusive Households in Building Financial Security, a discussion about the opportunities to equitably support the financial situations of households.

This 6-part event series, Inclusive Growth in St. Louis, will investigate who is left out of St. Louis’ economic growth benefits, the policies that have led to the unequal distribution of opportunities, and actionable recommendations to become a more inclusive economy.

The series is designed by an advisory committee comprised of local individuals that are passionate about building an inclusive community with equitable opportunities for all, and features community leaders as speakers. The series is made possible through a partnership with the Social Policy Institute at Washington University in St. Louis and Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth.
