Keynote Speaker – Anne Price
Anne Price is the first woman President of the Insight Center for Community Economic Development, a fifty-year-old economic justice and research organization. Anne sparks ideas for innovative, multi-dimensional solutions to economic and racial inequities and advocates for transformative change that addresses the root causes of economic inequality. She previously led the Closing the Racial Wealth Gap initiative at the Insight Center, elevating the voices and opinions of experts of color in national economic debates and policy making. Her tireless work has brought the issue of the racial wealth gap into mainstream consciousness and vernacular with an explosion of media coverage of the data and research quantifying racial differences in wealth accumulation. Anne was one of the first national thought leaders to examine and push for narrative change in addressing race, gender and wealth inequality. She was also an early adopter of connecting criminal justice debt to racial wealth inequality. Anne has spent more than 25 years working in the public sector on issues that range from child welfare to hunger to workforce development and higher education.
Anne’s work has been featured in the New York Times, The Washington Post, The Mercury News, Citylab, O Magazine, and the Stanford Social Innovation Review and other publications. She has appeared on MSNBC and Noticias Telemundo. Anne is a fellow at the Roosevelt Institute in New York. She also currently serves as Board Chair at United for a Fair Economy in Boston. Anne holds a BA in Economics from Hampton University and a Master’s Degree in Urban Affairs and Public Policy from the Milano School of Management and Urban Policy in New York City.
