Closing the Wealth Gap Conference

This conference is the culmination of a three-part series in which thought leaders from different disciplines present to academic researchers, students and community members on the ever-increasing wealth gap of the United States, and its ramifications for U.S. prosperity. The conference will cover a range of topics, including: consequences of wealth inequities in America, the role of banks and the investment community in closing the wealth gap, practices and policies of other countries with more narrow wealth gaps, workable solutions from corporate America, the role of policy and technology in closing the wealth gap and solutions to closing the wealth gap. This conference is an interdisciplinary forum organized, in part, by graduate students from the UNC School of Law, the Gillings School of Global Public Health, the School of Social Work and the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School.
