The Chair of the Federal Reserve, Janet Yellen, is in Rhode Island today.
She’s set to speak before some 750 people at the Providence Chamber of Commerce’s annual Economic Outlook Luncheon.
Yellen is the first woman in U.S. history to hold the top position at the Fed. Yellen has spent time in Rhode Island before; she graduated from Brown University with an economics degree in 1967.
Governor Gina Raimondo, Senator Jack Reed and University of Rhode Island President David Dooley are also set to speak at the lunch.
