Financial Planning and the Racial Wealth Gap with Dr. Miranda Reiter, Ph.D.

For a long time, gender and racial equality stood far from ever being recognized and addressed. It’s only in recent years that we as a society have progressed to be much more inclusive and representative of minorities in the financial planning field.

In this episode to celebrate women’s month, I’m joined by Dr. Miranda Reiter, Ph.D., an accomplished individual that has well over 20 years of experience in the field of financial planning. With her credible studies into the racial differences in life insurance, Miranda aims to bring to light the systemic and historical issues that present themselves in the financial literacy of households of color.

Join us in this episode as we talk about the facts and how the industry needs to change to present more equal and equitable opportunities for minorities.
