The COVID-19 pandemic has deepened a host of parallel and intersecting crises—unacceptable wealth and income gaps; lack of economic mobility and opportunity for BIPOC; inadequacies and inequities in health services, housing, transportation, and much more. In a way, the City of Boston’s extraordinary successes before the pandemic served to mask these crises from public view but the inequitable effects of the pandemic spurred new focus and energy around the city’s crises.

Join us this fall for a speaker series exploring the short- and long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in the City of Boston, and the resulting opportunities for creating lasting systemic change. 

All sessions will be recorded and may be posted to YouTube and/or CPL's social media channels. Registration is required. Persons with disabilities who wish to request accommodation or who have questions about access, please contact hauser_leaders@hks.harvard.edu in advance of the session.
