Center for Global Policy Solutions Hosts Women’s Wealth & Health Equity Summit

Allies for Reaching Community Health Equity (ARCHE), an initiative of the Center for Global Policy Solutions (CGPS), is hosting the Women’s Wealth & Health Equity Summit, a two-day event where over 150 experts, practitioners, and advocates from around the country will convene to address health and wealth inequities affecting women and families. This Summit will examine the consequences of these inequities, placing a particular focus on women of color as well as other disadvantaged groups.

On Tuesday, July 18, industry experts will explore the impacts of social determinants such as poverty and housing on the health and economic well-being of families and communities. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Leana Wen, Public Health Commissioner of Baltimore.

On Wednesday, July 19, experts will explore community and business solutions to advance women’s wealth and close the pay gap. The keynote speaker will be Julianne Malveaux, PhD, labor economist and author.

By raising awareness of the causes and consequences of wealth disparities experienced by women, ARCHE hopes to expand understanding of the impact of these inequities on the health and well-being of children, families and communities. A full Summit agenda can be found here.
