The Institute for Economic Equity will host the first Conversations on Equity virtual event on February 2, 2022. The new speakers series features national thought leaders who are working to build awareness of obstacles to economic equity. Guests will share their views on a range of integral topics and discuss evidence-based solutions aimed at dismantling such obstacles.

Shuler leads the nation’s largest federation of unions, representing over 12.5 million workers. She will share her views on the current state of economic equity, focusing on her vision, goals and strategies for ensuring that the nation’s workers, families and communities can thrive.
