This conversation features Michelle Holder, President and CEO of the Washington Center for Equitable Growth. Holder’s research focuses primarily on how the US job market discriminates against people of color, particularly Black women, who not only face a gender wage gap but a racial wage gap. She has written extensively on this subject, including The ‘Double Gap’ and the Bottom Line: African American Women’s Wage Gap and Corporate Profits, and more recently The Early Impact of Covid-19 on Job losses among Black Women in the United States.


What you'll learn

At the end of the recording, participants will be able to:

  • Describe how the public health system underperformed during COVID from policy and political perspectives
  • Discuss evidence for disparate effects of COVID on job loss and negative economic effects across gender, race, and class lines
  • Discuss lessons learned to improve public health response to combat more effectively the disparate outcomes of COVID along racial and ethnic lines

Travel Restrictions During Pandemics: Considerations and Consequences

Have the benefits of implementing cross-border travel bans aimed at containing the spread of disease outweighed the potential adverse effects on limiting the availability of health workers, the increase of xenophobia, and use based on political motivations rather than potential for improving public health?

About this Recording

Cross-border travel bans have long been controversial in public health. While travel bans may help contain disease spread, there are also concerns that they may limit the availability of health workers where needed, and that they may encourage xenophobia. During the COVID-19 pandemic, travel bans were implemented widely by many countries (U.S. included), in an effort to contain the virus and control its spread. But how effective were they in suppressing the spread? Is it fair to look at the effectiveness of these bans without considering if they do more harm than good? Dr. William J. Bicknell endowed this lectureship to support excellence, rigor, imagination and risk-taking in the teaching and practice of public health through annual lectures.


What you'll learn

At the end of the recording, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the legal right to restrict travel in the United States and its potential for misuse
  • Describe the legal framework and principles that can provide structure for decision making about international travel restrictions in times of uncertainty
  • Discuss the evidence for the effectiveness of travel restrictions in decreasing the transmission of disease and reducing risk
  • Discuss the evidence for the role of COVID testing and vaccines in travel restrictions
  • Describe lessons learned about quarantine, isolation, and travel restrictions from the historical example of yellow fever

    @senwarren

    (OPENING CONVERSATION)
    U.S. Senate, Massachusetts

  • Elizabeth Warren, a fearless consumer advocate who has made her life’s work the fight for middle class families, was elected to the United States Senate on November 6, 2012, by the people of Massachusetts. Elizabeth is recognized as one of the nation’s top experts on bankruptcy and the financial pressures facing middle class families, and the Boston Globe has called her “the plainspoken voice of people getting crushed by so many predatory lenders and under regulated banks.” She is widely credited for the original thinking, political courage, and relentless persistence that led to the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. President Obama asked her to set up the new agency to hold Wall Street banks and other financial institutions accountable, and to protect consumers from financial tricks and traps often hidden in mortgages, credit cards and other financial products. In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, Warren served as Chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). Her independent and tireless efforts to protect taxpayers, to hold Wall Street accountable, and to ensure tough oversight of both the Bush and Obama Administrations won praise from both sides of the aisle. The Boston Globe named Elizabeth Warren Bostonian of the Year and TIME Magazine called her a “New Sheriff of Wall Street” for her oversight efforts. During her campaign for the Senate, Elizabeth promised to fight for middle class families and to make sure that everyone has a fair shot to get ahead. She called for policies that would level the regulatory playing field for small businesses and ensure that everyone – even large and powerful corporations – pays a fair share in taxes and is held accountable for breaking the law. Endorsing Elizabeth’s candidacy, the New Bedford Standard-Times said, “Elizabeth Warren has it right on all the things that matter most to us in SouthCoast and across Massachusetts,” with “principles that without a doubt, promote the well-being of the middle class.” The Boston Globe called Elizabeth “a fierce advocate for the lot of working families, creating educational opportunities, and expanding medical research.” The Springfield Republican said, “We need a voice for working families in Washington again. Elizabeth Warren will give us that voice.” Senator Warren was a law professor for more than 30 years, including nearly 20 years as the Leo Gottlieb Professor of Law at Harvard Law School. The graduating class at Harvard twice recognized her with the Sacks-Freund Award for excellence in teaching. She taught courses on commercial law, contracts, and bankruptcy and wrote more than a hundred articles and ten books, including three national best-sellers, A Fighting Chance, The Two-Income Trap, and All Your Worth. National Law Journal named her one of the Most Influential Lawyers of the Decade, TIME Magazine has named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world four times, and she has been honored by the Massachusetts Women’s Bar Association with the Lelia J. Robinson Award. Elizabeth learned first-hand about the economic pressures facing working families, growing up in a family she says was “on the ragged edge of the middle class.” She got married at 19, and after graduating from college, started teaching in elementary school. Her first baby, a daughter Amelia, was born when Elizabeth was 22. When Amelia was two, Elizabeth started law school. Shortly after she graduated, her son Alex was born. Elizabeth hung out a shingle and practiced law out of her living room, but she soon returned to teaching. Elizabeth is a graduate of the University of Houston and Rutgers School of Law. Elizabeth and her husband Bruce Mann have been married for 38 years and live in Cambridge, Massachusetts with their golden retriever, Bailey. They have three grandchildren.

Currently, Congresswoman Pressley serves on two powerful Congressional committees – the House Committee on Oversight and Reform and the House Committee on Financial Services– both of which have remained focused on legislatively addressing issues of care, concern, and consequence to the American people. Prior to being elected to Congress, she served on the Boston City Council for 8 years, and was the first woman of color elected to the council in its 100-year history.

    University Distinguished Professor of Law and Humanities, Northeastern University School of Law


  • Professor Williams, one of the most provocative intellectuals in American law and a pioneer of both the law and literature and critical race theory movements in American legal theory, holds a joint appointment between the School of Law and the Department of Philosophy and Religion in the College of Social Sciences and Humanities. She is also director of Law, Technology and Ethics Initiatives in the School of Law and the College of Social Sciences and Humanities. Professor Williams has published widely in the areas of race, gender, literature and law. Her books, including The Alchemy of Race and Rights (Harvard University Press, 1991), illustrate some of America’s most complex societal problems and challenge our ideas about socio-legal constructs of race and gender. Her work remains at the cutting edge of legal scholarship. Drawing on her prior interrogation of race, gender and personhood, Professor Williams’ current research raises core questions of individual autonomy and identity in the context of legal and ethical debates on science and technology. Her work in the area of health and genetics, for example, questions how racial formation is shaped by the legal regulation of private industry and government. Her work on algorithms grapples with the auditing function of technology in our everyday lives — shaping how we understand who we are.

About this Recording

When looking at the disproportionate impact in health disparities on communities of color, the black community's experience can be an indicator of what is happening to all marginalized communities. It is possible that empathy is hard to have as a member of a less impacted community. If you don't see it and don't experience it, it seems you don't feel it.


What you'll learn

At the end of the recording, participants will be able to:

  • List four ways in which Black and Brown communities have been disadvantaged more than white communities due to the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Name three health impacts of not having stable and safe housing
  • Name two actions on housing policies that can reduce housing inequity
  • Name three ways that the Justice System can reduce racial injustice
