Launch of the Institute for Economic Equity
On February 11, the St. Louis Fed launched the Institute for Economic Equity (IEE, or the Institute) to support an economy that works for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender or place of residence.
The Institute works to:
- Examine how low- to moderate-income (LMI), low wealth or systemically disenfranchised individuals and communities interact with the economy
- Identify structural and institutional disparities that suppress the ability of historically marginalized communities to participate in and derive benefit from the economy
- Advance evidence-based ideas and policy analysis to foster a more equitable economy
