“We are excited to have Professor Baradaran join the OneTransaction Conference to provide an important framework for our discussion on the racial wealth gap,” says Teri Williams, President & COO of OneUnited Bank. “We need to dispel the myths of why the racial wealth gap exists and promote significant changes in public policy to close it.”
