Heather Boushey Visits NETWORK
March 3, 2020
Today, NETWORK is proud to have Heather Boushey, the President and CEO of the Washington Center for Equitable Growth at our office to talk about mending the gaps in our nation’s growing wealth and income disparities.
As a regular writer for popular media, including The New York Times, The Atlantic, MSNBC, and CNBC, Boushey has made quite an impact on what it means to be a woman in our economy.
Focused on the inequality, Boushey has actively been an advocate for economic inequities in the social fabric of our nation. In fact, her new book Unbound: How Inequality Constricts Our Economy and What We Can Do About It is all about how economic inequality ultimately hurts people, businesses, and the overall growth of our country. Boushey argues that stagnant wages and lack of workplace benefits further complicate financial instability for many people. Our economic policy must work to heal inequality and create new solutions for people to be supported, not hindered, by our government.
