TO BE RESCHEDULED . . . FPP 2020 Northwest Florida/Panhandle Regional Roundtable: Community Conversations – Racial Wealth Disparity and Affordable Homes Inventory in the Region
A Conversation Highlighting Racial Wealth Disparity and the Affordable Homes Inventory in the Florida Panhandle Region
As we, as community leaders and Financial Capability practitioners, look at the new post-COVID economy, there will be so many changes in the ways people tell their future "Financial Story." These impending shifts, exaggerated by repetitive weather episodes in the region, are already generating an adverse impact on many elements of the local economy, and even more so on households and communities of color.
What resources are currently available, yet must be highlighted to heighten awareness for Panhandle residents?
What steps can we all take together to overcome the impending challenges in our communities, and in our local economy?
What more can be done to inspire a community-driven approach toward the best solutions for our shared future, one that is inclusive of all?
Join FPP, with D.C. Reeves, Chief Entrepreneur Officer of The Spring Entrepreneur Hub central to the sharing conversation, and all your peer community stakeholders as we convene in this Summit to engage in meaningful conversation that leads to even more meaningful resource-sharing, inspiration and outcomes.
Join this convening to be an active part of creating a better tomorrow for all in the Panhandle region of Florida.Find out more »
FPP 2020 West Central Florida Regional Roundtable: Financial Inclusion Summit – Banking Access and the Racial Wealth Gap
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.Find out more »
