Webinar: Strengthening the Financial Future of Families, Communities, and the Nation | June 14, 2016

Connecting Communities and What It’s Worth: presented by the Federal Reserve System

Tuesday, June 14, 2016, 3-4pm EST

What It’s Worth is pleased to partner with the Federal Reserve System’s Connecting Communities initiative for a webinar this June. The program will feature speakers from the What It’s Worth book, and the discussion will cover promising practices for building financial well-being. Every household’s financial health matters to the success of the U.S. economy, but financial insecurity is widespread and impacts a broad range of outcomes, such as health, educational attainment, and employment. Topics covered during the webinar will include strength-based, multicultural asset development approaches, such as the Lending Circles platform, and services that integrate financial capability and higher education to build the financial health of formerly incarcerated individuals.

The hour-long session will feature 30-45 minutes of slides and speaker presentations, followed by an interactive question-and-answer period. The session and session materials are free; however, a valid e-mail address is required to register.

Speakers include:

Laura Choi, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco
Kate Griffin, CFED
Jose Quinonez, Mission Asset Fund
Paul Weech, NeighborWorks America
