Opportunity & Inclusive Growth Institute Conference

The Opportunity & Inclusive Growth Institute is a new Federal Reserve initiative aimed at conducting world-class research to measure, analyze and make recommendations to improve the economic well-being of all Americans, with a particular focus on structural barriers that limit full participation in economic opportunity and advancement in the U.S.

The Institute’s inaugural conference will be held on May 22-23, 2017. The agenda includes discussions of current challenges to economic opportunity within the context of how the Federal Reserve can proactively engage and assist in supporting inclusive growth, either through monetary policy or other public policy contributions.
