Research from Altarum Institute shows that if we can close income and employability gaps between white workers and workers of color, we would see a $2 trillion increase to the US economy each year and GDP growth of $5 trillion by 2030. J. Michael Carr, the Executive Director of Fathers for the Future, is doing his part.  Under his leadership the organization has created financial literacy workshops, mentoring programs and alumni networks for young fathers.

Michael Carr is a native of Chicago, and grew up on the city’s south side.  He earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a master’s in business administration with a concentration in nonprofit management from Roosevelt University.
