Who Has Never Led You?

Location: Grand Ballroom (2nd Floor)

In 1994 college graduation rates for black and latinx populations were 12% and 13 % respectively. Today, 33% of Black and 23% of Latinx populations hold a 2 or 4 year degree. There have been tremendous gains in the world of education reform over the last 25 years but something isn’t translating beyond college. There are less than 5 Black CEOs of fortune 500 companies, just 4 Latinx U.S Senators and the median net worth of white households is still 13x that of Black households and 10x that of Latinx households.
