What racism costs everyone | Heather C. McGhee
Play • 26 min

If it’s the richest country in the world, why does the American economy fail so much of the American public? Heather C. McGhee is a public policy expert who has spent the past several years trying to understand that question. Her conclusion, carefully detailed in a NYT bestselling book called The Sum of US, is that racism leads to bad public policy. Policies that have a cost for everyone—not just people of color. In this talk, she proposes a new way of thinking that can lead to a more prosperous nation for everyone.

After the talk, Heather and Modupe continue the conversation to get practical and figure out how to bring this mindset to work.
