Planning Effectively for Economic Equity in Retirement

All retirement plans aren’t created equal, nor do all people have the same opportunities to make retirement plans that will meet their aging needs.  Ray Boshara is senior advisor for the Institute for Economic Equity at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Some of his research and writing focuses on the inequity in gaining and maintaining wealth for African Americans. He has championed causes to help promote equality and social support for those in need. Boshara is widely credited with leading the campaign to enact the Assets for Independence Act, which created thousands of Individual Development Accounts throughout the U.S. Over the past 25 years, he has advised presidential candidates, as well as the George W. Bush, Clinton, Obama and Trump administrations. He has testified before the U.S. House and Senate several times. Boshara has written for The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Atlantic and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, among others. His book, The Next Progressive Era, co-authored with Phillip Longman, was published in 2009. Raised in Akron, Ohio, Boshara is a graduate of The Ohio State University, Yale Divinity School and the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard.

Join Ray to learn more about the depth of wealth inequality in the U.S to take a close look at the racial, generational, educational and gender wealth gaps, what this means for the majority of Americans who are not well prepared for retirement, and some novel strategies to improve retirement security in the U.S.
