On November 22, Lisa A. Gennetian joined a panel of experts on racial and ethnic inequities in family income stability. The panel was part of a day-long event hosted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), Brandeis University’s The Heller School for Social Policy and Management and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, to engage in a dialogue on racial/ethnic equity and policy proposals to reduce child poverty. During the panel, Gennetian spoke about how poverty as well as stability of income can affect children’s development and presented findings from her work on income stability among Hispanic families with children.
The event was one of many featuring conclusions from the 2019 NASEM report, A Roadmap to Reducing Child Poverty. To watch the webcast recording of the event and download the report, visit: https://sites.nationalacademies.org/dbasse/bcyf/reducing_child_poverty/index.htm
