What is household financial well-being? What is the relationship between income, expenses, and wealth-building? How has COVID-19 affected our ability to make ends meet? Join the Atlanta Fed to unpack what we mean by household financial well-being and how it is crucial to an inclusive and resilient recovery. National and southeastern experts will add their voices to this discussion.
Household financial well-being is a lens that grounds us in the lived experience of people in our communities. It focuses us on day-to-day impacts of the racial wealth gap, occupational segregation, and credit and housing markets that leave many families behind. With the financial well-being perspective, we can imagine and activate workable, inclusive interventions for economic mobility and resilience.
After the webinar, you’ll have
- A definition of household financial well-being and how it relates to economic resilience during shocks like COVID-19
- A deeper understanding of the cash flow and net worth challenges that households are currently facing
- Learnings about systems-level strategies to improve household financial well-being across the southeast
The presentation and panelists will discuss financial well-being and its relationship to an inclusive and resilient recovery for the whole economy.
