The Federal Reserve Bank of New York works to promote sound and well-functioning financial systems and markets through its provision of industry and payment services, advancement of infrastructure reform in key markets and training and educational support to international institutions.
The Outreach and Education function engages, empowers and educates the Second District communities that the Bank serves, especially civic leaders, students, educators, small business owners, policymakers and the general public. It furthers the Bank's commitment to the region by listening to the communities we serve and leveraging our unique attributes to positively impact school and university programs, as well as analysis and research.
The conference will begin by examining the historical transformations of the “engine of growth” industries in the New York metropolitan area, as well as more recent changes in the nature and location of economic activities in this area. It will then address the impact of such changes on a variety of socioeconomic outcomes, both for the general population and for recent immigrants in particular.
