Urban universities + economic inclusion and recovery
Bruce Katz, founding director, Nowak Metro Finance Lab at Drexel University
October 19, 1—2:30 p.m. ET
COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on small businesses across the globe. In the U.S. alone, millions have shuttered, many will not survive. The pandemic has also dealt significant blows to higher education. Post COVID-19 our main streets and entire economic ecosystems will be in a state of recovery. With only so many resources available, how do we balance the recovery of our institutions while addressing economic inclusion and recovery for all?
Join Bruce Katz for a conversation on the intersection of economic recovery and structural and systemic inequities of Black and Brown communities, entrepreneurs, and businesses. Learn about practices, programs, and policies our urban and metropolitan universities can employ to make lasting, equitable change—on campus and in our communities. Andy Berke, Mayor of Chattanooga, Tennessee, will join Bruce for this critical conversation.
