The Real Student Debt Crisis: Women & Minorities


There’s a student loan crisis in America. Did you know women hold over ⅔ of all student debt - and that over 90% of African Americans and 70% of Hispanics pull out substantial amounts of debt to finance their education? This session will feature an all-star roster of student loan experts, advocates and entrepreneurs shedding light on this fast growing epidemic, solutions to tackle and prevent it, and the long-term impact student loans are having on women and minorities.
