On March 21, 2023, over 250 leaders came together for BEA’s inaugural Solutions Summit – a day-long event featuring an extraordinary cross-sectoral lineup of decision-makers building consensus for action to expand Black economic prosperity and wealth-building. The Summit featured insights on the latest research, cutting-edge ideas, and what’s working on the ground from Vice President Kamala Harris, Ambassador Susan Rice, former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, author Heather McGhee, Ariel Investments Founder John Rogers, and Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan – all with an eye towards identifying and implementing solutions that will move the needle on advancing Black work, wages, and wealth.
