COVID-19 RESPONSE AND RECOVERY FOR SMALL BUSINESSES: A WEBINAR HOSTED BY BROOKLYN COLLEGE’S KOPPELMAN SCHOOL OF BUSINESS
COVID-19 has magnified existing inequities in access to healthcare and to financial resources. Communities of color across New York City have been especially hard-hit by the health and financial impacts of the pandemic. A novel policy intervention, the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), sought to directly support small businesses and nonprofit organizations. How effective and equitable has the PPP been in response to the crises so far? What are the key elements of a just and equitable recovery agenda that helps small businesses and nonprofits survive and thrive?
Hosted by Qing Hu, dean of the Koppelman School of Business, and moderated by Darline Augustine, associate professor of business management at Koppelman. The discussion will feature presentations by distinguished business leaders and experts.
