U.S. Chamber America’s Opportunity Gaps By the Numbers

October 13, 2020

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has launched the Equality of Opportunity Initiative to address opportunity gaps that perpetuate broader inequalities in our society and hold back individual and business success and economic growth. Through this initiative the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is developing and advancing data-driven business and policy solutions to bridge opportunity gaps and ensure that Black Americans and people of color have greater opportunities to succeed. Research has been compiled to show the magnitude of the opportunity gaps in six key areas – Education, Employment, Entrepreneurship, Criminal Justice, Health and Wealth.
