A Conversation Highlighting Financial Inclusion and the Racial Wealth Gap
Financial inclusion requires a commitment to financial opportunity as well as financial outcomes. Addressing barriers to Financial Capability is a critical step in creating a more inclusive financial system.
People of color have been historically and systemically excluded from full participation in the mainstream economy. A higher percentage of unbanked and an even higher percentage of underbanked individuals are people of color. Un- and underbanked households rely on alternative services that typically include high costs and exclude wealth-building benefits.
This session will explore the relationship between banking access and the racial wealth gap:
– How has insufficient access played a role in both creating and perpetuating the racial wealth gap?
– How can safe and affordable financial services and products play a role in closing the gap?
– How can Financial Capability practitioners from all sectors be more intentional about addressing racial wealth inequity?
Engage with your peers and experts from the community and United Way Suncoast in this Roundtable’s lively exchange that leads to a call to action.
