JFI hosts research sessions, webinars, and seminars on all of our topics of interest. Many of the events are available in recorded form on our YouTube page.
In July 2020, we launched a Social Wealth Seminar series, a diverse, interdisciplinary space to foster collaboration at the point where public finance meets more just social policy. More information here.
