Event Recap | Dean’s Forum on Race & Public Policy: How Bidenomics Targets Systemic Inequities

The Dean’s Forum series focuses on the intersection of race and public policy in support of the Evans School of Public Policy & Governance’s mission to host community conversations that inspire public leaders.

On October 30, 2023, Dean Jodi Sandfort hosted a conversation with Heather Boushey, a member of President Biden‘s Council of Economic Advisers and Chief Economist to the Investing in America Cabinet, about how addressing racial inequity underpins “Bidenomics” – the President’s agenda for sustained and equitable economic growth. Heather is co-founder of the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, where she was President and CEO from 2013 – 2020. She previously served as chief economist for Secretary Clinton‘s 2016 transition team and as an economist for the Center for American Progress, the Joint Economic Committee of the U.S. Congress, the Center for Economic and Policy Research, and the Economic Policy Institute.
