School of Public Policy Fall Speaker Series: "Assessing the Impact of Systemic Inequality on Racial Income Inequality in Metropolitan Labor Markets"

Niki vonLockette, associate professor of public policy and African American studies, will present "Assessing the Impact of Systemic Inequality on Racial Income Inequality in Metropolitan Labor Markets" Thursday, October 21 at Noon via Zoom.  

vonLockette's work examines the impact of residential segregation on unemployment and wages for Black and Latino workers in metropolitan areas (economic geography, city and community), and the effects of workplace occupational segregation on worker attitudes (work and occupations).

The National Academy of Science awarded her a HUD post-doctoral fellowship to study the impact of residential segregation on the race gap in unemployment. She has served as a consultant for the U.S. Departments of Labor and Commerce and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
