The Los Angeles World Affairs Council & Town Hall is honored to host Dr. Mary Daly, President & CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, who will speak on The Value of an Inclusive Economy, over lunch at the Biltmore Hotel.

America’s economic expansion is now in its tenth year. Unemployment rates are near historic lows. Does this mean the U.S. economy has reached its full potential? Not quite. Data tells us that considerable talent is still being left on the table – from rural populations with limited job opportunities to lower-income Americans struggling to access education. Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco President Mary C. Daly will discuss the value of having these communities more fully participating in our economy – and why inclusive success is essential to America’s future economic competitiveness.

Mary C. Daly became the thirteenth president and chief executive officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco on October 1, 2018. A Missouri native, Daly earned a bachelor’s degree in economics and philosophy from the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 1985, a master’s degree in economics from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 1987, and a doctorate in economics from Syracuse University in 1994. She completed a National Institute on Aging post-doctoral fellowship at Northwestern University in 1996.

Daly joined the San Francisco Fed in 1996 as a research economist and held positions of increasing responsibility, including vice president, group vice president, and senior vice president and associate director of research. She became the Bank’s executive vice president and director of research in 2017.
