Covid-19 Exposed: The Quest for Equity
Friday, October 16, 2020 / 12:00 PM – 1:30 EDT
The Covid-19 pandemic has unmasked hard truths about society. Marginalized communities are more susceptible to the consequences — whether intentional or not — of actions that adversely impact the environment. Air pollution and other actions are closely connected to the disparate health outcomes suffered by vulnerable groups. During this briefing, we’ll discuss these issues, as well as how the housing crisis has been exacerbated by Covid-19, and the policies and programs needed to make housing more affordable for everyone. And, as recent protests spark discussions about the role of multigenerational wealth and wealth inequality, what is the role of government and the private sector in helping to close the economic gap?
Bloomberg will bring together leaders on the front lines of the environment, housing and wealth creation to discuss solutions. We hope you can join these influential voices and leading experts on Friday, October 16, for this important and enlightening conversation.
