The Opportunity & Inclusive Growth Institute will host its 2022 research conference on November 17, 2022. This event will celebrate the Institute’s five-year anniversary and showcase the range of frontier-style research with which the Institute engages. Papers will discuss questions related to the Institute’s mission of supporting the Federal Reserve’s full employment mandate through research into how to enhance economic opportunity and achieve inclusive growth. The event will also feature a keynote speaker and panel discussion moderated by Institute Director Abigail Wozniak.

This event will be in person with presenters, discussants, and a small invited audience. We encourage everyone to livestream the proceedings on this page during the event or check back after for an event recording.

The main research conference will be accompanied by two other events. The Institute Advisory Board will hold its annual meeting on Wednesday. Friday is the Institute’s mentoring conference, which provides junior scholars an opportunity to present research and receive feedback in a constructive setting. These events will not be recorded, but we encourage you to visit participants’ websites to engage with their scholarship (see below).
