Community Conversations: A New Path to Closing the Racial Wealth Gap (w/ Dr. Karilyn Crockett)

Join us for a conversation with Dr. Karilyn Crockett about new ways to look at and address the racial wealth gap in Boston and beyond. We look forward to this discussion and hope you will join us to be a part of it.

A Brief Bio of Karilyn:

Karilyn served for four years with the Mayor’s Office of Economic Development as the Director of Economic Policy & Research and the Director of Small Business Development for the City of Boston. She served as Boston’s first Chief of Equity, a cabinet-level position for Mayor Marty Walsh established to embed equity and racial justice into all City planning, operations, and work. She holds a faculty appointment in MIT’s Department of Urban Studies & Planning. She is currently leading the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce in a partnership with the Boston Federal Reserve Bank to revisit the 2015 “Color of Wealth” report on closing the racial wealth gap. Karilyn’s career mission is to continue to work at the nexus of education, economic development policy and urban revitalization.
