Overcoming the Racial Wealth Gap with John Rogers, Chairman, Co-CEO, and CIO of Ariel Investments
John Rogers, Chairman, Co-CEO, and CIO of Ariel Investments, joins host and Vice Dean of the Wharton Social Impact Initiative Katherine Klein to discuss the racial wealth gap in the United States and strategies to overcome it. Systemic racism has prevented many African Americans from participating in key sectors of the economy in which wealth is created — financial services, professional services, and technology. Rogers argues that education and business diversity (not supplier diversity) are key approaches to solving long-lasting disparities.
