New Evidence on Racial Disparities in Financial Regulatory Leadership (Race and Regulation Lecture Series)

This lecture event, part of the 2021-22 Lecture Series on Race and Regulation, features Professor Chris Brummer of Georgetown University Law Center. For generations, Black financial regulators have been virtually absent across the United States government–a state of affairs that is deeply problematic from the standpoint of participatory democracy and economic inclusion. Their absence prevents the Black community from being represented in policy decisions that impact it profoundly and that affect the racial wealth gap. Professor Brummer will share the latest research on the extent of the problem and discuss what the data indicate about the causes of this longstanding racial disparity in financial regulatory leadership. This event, which will be held over Zoom, is co-sponsored by the Wharton Initiative on Financial Policy and Regulation. Register here
