The median white American household has ten times the net worth of the median black American household. This disparity affects black Americans' buying power, political influence, and ability to generate wealth. In this informative talk, expert Renée Baker reveals what we get wrong about this racial wealth gap and suggest practical steps that everyday Americans can take to close the gap and balance this inequality. Renée Baker has spent over 20 years in the financial services industry. Her corporate position focuses on leading strategic initiatives to advance representation and drive business growth for diverse financial advisors. She holds a BS in finance from Rutgers University, an MBA from The Pennsylvania State University, a doctorate in business administration from Wilmington University, and holds several securities licenses. Renée has received several financial industry awards, including being named by Financial Planning magazine as one of the “20 People Who Will Change Wealth Management in 2020. When she is not empowering financial advisors and others to reach their full potential, Renée enjoys family time, volunteering, traveling, taking boxing lessons, and pursuing her entrepreneurial endeavors.
