Did you know? In the U.S., 84% of the country's household wealth is owned by white families. Black and Hispanic families account for only 4.1% and 2.5% of the nations wealth, respectively. And according to the Federal Reserve, those numbers have remained unchanged for more than 30 years.
On May 20, 2021, Britepaths hosted our second virtual Town Hall: Resiliency Programs Through an Equity Lens. The panel discussion was engaging and informative, covering topics ranging from America's racial wealth gap to the psychology of money management. We were joined by special guests Jon Dauphiné, CEO of the Foundation for Financial Planning and Erica James, a dedicated Britepaths volunteer and Certified Financial Planner. Also lending a perspective to the conversation was Britepaths Financial Literacy Program Director Marcelle Miles.
