DIVERSITY REBOOT SERIES 2023:
DEIB is about more than inviting historically excluded groups into a space. It’s giving them the tools to go just as far as their most privileged peers — and one of the essential tools is financial privilege.
Financial privilege includes not only existing family wealth, but also getting approved for a mortgage or a small business loan; knowing how to write a grant application; understanding the world of investing; and having the right contacts to invest in a business idea.
At our first financial inclusion summit, we will gather with leaders in finance, philanthropy and entrepreneurship to explore how to empower those without financial privilege, and work towards equitable financial inclusion.
The summit will conclude with a virtual job fair featuring companies who are doing their part in financial inclusion by hiring historically excluded groups in desirable and highly visible roles.
