Window On Racial Inequities in the Labor Market

JULY 22, 2020


As we are emerging from the impacts of the global pandemic and the ensuing economic crisis it triggered, America and the world have been once again confronted by deep, underlying racial and social injustices sparked by the brutal death of George Floyd and subsequent events. Many of those injustices are reflected in the inequalities in the labor market, and COVID-19 has brought these challenges to the forefront in a forceful manner.

In this webcast, experts will discuss how racial injustices have emerged over time, how COVID-19 has exacerbated the situation, and what policies and initiatives can help to tackle the issues in a systematic way.

By attending this webcast, viewers will be able to answer the following questions:

  • Why are racial and other social inequities in labor market systemic in nature?
  • How has COVID-19 impacted on wage and wealth gaps between minorities recently?
  • What policy and business initiatives can bring about sustained improvement?

Who Should Attend: Global business executives across all functions
