Session Description:

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. What It’s Worth: Strengthening the Financial Future of Families, Communities and the Nation offers a collection of essays from some of the nation’s leading experts that examines the systemic causes of financial insecurity, the enormous creativity and innovation already happening to increase financial well-being, and how we can implement proven and emerging solutions.   

Speakers will discuss promising practices for building financial well-being, such as integrating services across sectors and ideas for policies and financial prodcuts designed to expand economic opportunity for lower-income Americans. Topics 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.  

Speakers include:

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