    Mary Lazarus Legacy Fund Celebrating Women in Society Forum

    The gender wealth gap goes far beyond wage inequality and is a much more comprehensive framework for understanding a women's financial security over her lifetime. Wealth, the value of assets minus debts, enables women to be economically empowered. While building wealth can be a lifelong process, women, especially women of color, generally have fewer opportunities than men to accumulate wealth.

    Our panel will discuss the gender and racial wealth gap and community solutions to move towards economic empowerment for women, girls, and families. The conversation will center around findings from the recently commissioned report by The Institute for Women's Policy Research "Assets for Equity: Building Wealth for Women in Central Ohio", the first to look at the gender and racial wealth gap at a local level in Ohio.

    We welcome Christie Angel (President and CEO of YWCA Columbus), Suparna Bhaskaran, Ph.D. (Senior Researcher at The Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society), Darrick Hamilton (Executive Director of the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity), and host Kelley Griesmer (President and CEO of The Women's Fund of Central Ohio).

    The Franklin County Convention Facilities Authority today owns the largest collection of local contemporary art, on display in the Greater Columbus Convention Center, the Hilton Columbus Downtown, and three parking garages. They feel that their collection is the result of a community-wide call for art, and the artists represent the diversity of our community, cutting across age, gender, and race.

    CMC members and their guests are invited to join us as we tour the collections of the Greater Columbus Convention Center and the Hilton. The tour will be led by renowned local art consultant and buyer, Michael Reese. After, we will gather for a happy hour at the Hilton!!

    Limited space is available, so register today!
