Banks can be part of the solution to racial economic inequality in the U.S. In this session, we will explore the history of race and the banking system, its implications for our products and services today, its connection to fair lending laws, and how we can approach intentionally designing racially equitable products and services. As our society more openly reckons with racism in our country, we as bankers have the opportunity to honestly and thoroughly examine where banking fits in and how we can design solutions to create equitable financial opportunity and the racially equitable world we all wish to see.
