Fighting Inequality: power, profits, and the pandemic

January 13 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

The world is dealing with heart-breaking times as the global pandemic has caused millions of people to lose their jobs, go hungry, and die. Yet, while workers, families, and small businesses are struggling to survive, elite billionaires and corporations have seen their wealth sore. 32 of the world’s biggest corporations are expected to make $109 billion more in earnings during 2020 than in previous years.

Join Oxfam, SEIU, and the Boston Network for International Development with Goalmakers 2020 for a conversation examining the rise of inequality and how the pandemic continues to further expose the rigged economic model that fuels the widening gap.

Participants:
Mary Kay Henry, President, SEIU International
Anand Giridharadas, author of Winners Take All and The.Ink. newsletter
Moderated by Paul O’Brien, Vice President of Policy and Advocacy, Oxfam America
