About

The economic challenges facing the United States in the era of COVID-19 are varied and interconnected, requiring complex solutions and the participation of leaders across all sectors. To address the longstanding disparities that were exposed and exacerbated by the pandemic and drive solutions to create a more equitable and inclusive recovery, the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) launched a CGI Action Network on Inclusive Economic Recovery.
