SALT LAKE CITY, UT (October 27, 2021) – Mary C. Daly, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and host of the popular Zip Code Economies podcast, will keynote the 2022 Utah Economic Outlook & Public Policy Summit, the Salt Lake Chamber announced today. As a participant on the Federal Open Market Committee, she helps set American monetary policy that promotes a healthy and stable economy.

Since taking office in October 2018, Dr. Daly has committed to making the San Francisco Fed a more community-engaged bank that is transparent and responsive to the people it serves. She works to connect economic principles to real-world concerns and is a sought-after speaker on monetary policy, labor economics, and increasing diversity within the economics field.

“President Daly’s addition as Keynote speaker to our Economic Outlook & Public Policy Summit could not be more welcome given her insight into Federal Reserve policy as a macro driver of growth,” said Derek Miller, president and CEO of the Salt Lake Chamber. “Her expertise in the internal workings of the market and insight into the global monetary response of stimulus to propel economies highlights how one impacts the other. We look forward to hearing from President Daly.” 

Dr. Daly began her career with the San Francisco Fed in 1996 as an economist specializing in labor market dynamics and economic inequality. She went on to become the Bank’s Executive Vice President and Director of Research. She currently serves on advisory boards for the Center for First-Generation Student Success and the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. She has also served on the advisory boards of the Congressional Budget Office, the Social Security Administration, the Office of Rehabilitation Research and Training, the Institute of Medicine, and the Library of Congress.

Dr. Daly earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City, a master’s degree from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and a Ph.D. from Syracuse University. She also completed a National Institute of Aging post-doctoral fellowship at Northwestern University.

A native of Ballwin, Missouri, Dr. Daly now lives in Oakland, California, with her wife Shelly.

The Salt Lake Chamber and Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute’s 2022 Economic Outlook & Public Policy Summit will be held on January 13, 2022, at the Grand America Hotel, and is the state’s premier economic forecasting and public policy event that is attended by policy and academic thought leaders from across the state.
