Thursday, October 14, 2021, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

In his recent book, “The Bonds of Inequality,” Destin Jenkins presented research that the historical municipal bond market did not reflect minority community priorities. In this panel, we will hear from Professor Jenkins, along with participants from today’s municipal market. They will discuss if the municipal market has evolved to better reflect racial equity.

Moderator: Heather Willis, Senior Risk Manager, Siemens Financial Services 

Panelists: 

  • Destin Jenkins, PhD, Assistant Professor of History, Stanford University 
  • Don Rice, CEO, Rice Financial Products Company 
  • Third Panelist TBD.  Expected to be a senior representative from a debt-issuing local government
