Webinar: Controlling the Damage: COVID-19’s Impact on Inequality – Jun 21

Posted by Spotlight on Poverty and Opportunity on June 21, 2022

COVID-19 has pushed our social safety net to its breaking points. Low-wage and “essential” workers were among those hit hardest by the pandemic and its accompanying economic shocks. School closures and spiraling housing costs both worsened and highlighted inequalities that long preceded the pandemic. As the nation navigates an uncertain—and uneven—recovery, it’s clear we must do better in confronting future public health crises.

Research recently published in The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science (AAPSS) outlines policy approaches that can help our institutions respond more effectively. Join the Academy, the Social Policy Institute at Washington University in St. Louis, and the Brookings Institution for “COVID-19’s Impact on Inequality: Controlling the Damage.”

This event will take place on Tuesday, June 21 at 1:00 pm E.T.
