A Conversation with Senator Elizabeth Warren on Leveling the Playing Field

The Covid-19 pandemic reinforced pre-existing inequalities throughout the United States. Addressing the enduring legacies of the pandemic remains an issue of debate in halls of power – a skills gap from lost wages and schooling; a steep decline in entrepreneurial investment; long term health impacts accelerated by lack of access to healthcare; and greater financial vulnerabilities. The pandemic’s unequal burden and impact raises a pressing question: What are the risks of an uneven economic recovery? Where do we go from here to support people and families who feel left behind, especially as we emerge from the pandemic? How should policymakers, public servants, and civil society counter the long-term threat the pandemic poses to social mobility and economic opportunity? The Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service hosts U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in conversation with Rebecca Pearcey, GU Politics Fall Fellow, for a discussion on “Leveling the Playing Field.”
