Fair Lending, Discrimination & ISAs

July 30, 2020

2:00 PM ET / 11:00 AM PT

Many ISAs use differential pricing across schools and majors, relying on criteria that often align with race and gender. This panel will examine the disparate impact of ISAs, particularly on women and people of color. Panelists will explore the federal and state fair lending laws intended to protect consumers from discrimination and how ISAs fit into this existing fair lending framework.
