Atlanta Fed Inclusive and Resilient Recovery Series

How does career advancement contribute to household financial well-being? Structural barriers create obstacles to career advancement for many individuals. Aligned efforts of employers, community nonprofits, and government safety net programs can help to create short-term financial resilience and longer-term economic mobility for workers in the Southeast. Join the Atlanta Fed to learn how career advancement is tied to household financial well-being and economic mobility on Thursday, July 15, from 11 am to 12:30 pm ET.

Event details

National and southeastern experts will add their voices to this discussion. Attendees will leave this webinar with:

  • A deeper understanding of the lived reality of structural barriers to economic self sufficiency
  • Insights into how employers, government, and nonprofits can work in alignment to make sure jobs promote economic mobility

Household financial well-being offers a foundational lens for understanding the day-to-day impacts of the racial wealth gap, occupational segregation, and credit and housing markets that leave many families behind.
