Raj Chetty event promo

Will the economic fallout of COVID-19 make it harder to get ahead in America? Is it already harder than we think? On October 21, you’ll have a unique opportunity to explore these questions with acclaimed economist Dr. Raj Chetty, whose groundbreaking work has transformed what we know about economic mobility in the United States.

With insights for data scientists, economists, policymakers, and community leaders across all sectors, Chetty will show how the pandemic’s impact varies by ZIP code, discuss current and potential public policy responses, and connect the dots to long-standing obstacles to opportunity.

Brought to you by The Sycamore Institute and Vanderbilt University’s Data Science Institute, Department of Economics, and Public Policy Studies program, the event took place via Zoom. You can watch it again below.
