GAP Hosts Discussion About Racial Issues at the World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank

Shelley Walden, January 13, 2010

Today, January 12, from 6-8 p.m. GAP will host a round-table conversation at the Cullen Room at the new Busboys and Poets (5th & K location) concerning recent evidence from whistleblowers showing that racial discrimination remains a challenge at the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).

Following the discussion, the participants and the audience will consider the impact of discrimination in international development agencies and propose steps the Banks might take to improve their diversity profiles and address the socioeconomic problems that affect the Afro-descendant population.
