Fintech, Racial Equity, and an Inclusive Financial System

August 25, 2021 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am PDT

Financial Inclusion

Join on August 25 for a virtual event to launch a new issue of Community Development Innovation Review that explores the promises and pitfalls of fintech as a means of expanding financial inclusion and reaching underserved communities of color.

Innovations in financial technology, or fintech, are changing the ways people interact with the financial system. With these changes comes the possibility of improving inclusion for those who currently lack access to the traditional financial system, including low-income communities and communities of color. But with new ways of doing business come new risks of perpetuating existing inequities or creating new ones. 

The program features Mary C. Daly, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, in conversation with Ida Rademacher, executive director of the Aspen Institute Financial Security Program. Experts from across the community development and fintech spaces will discuss the risks and opportunities of financial technology innovation.

This program is designed to educate and inspire nonprofits, banks, fintechs, CDFIs, state and local government, and business leaders. Register today to learn about strategies that advance financial inclusion for low-income communities and communities of color.
