The War on Financial Instability: Building a Movement
Georgia Gonder, LendUp
Financial instability is the new reality for Americans, growing exponentially given factors like the gig economy. It affects individuals, but also employers, communities, and children's development. It’ll take a true public/private movement to solve. But how do you start a movement on such a big issue? One that engages experts, electeds, educators, employers, and community members, to develop new ideas that harness insights from the public, private and nonprofit sectors? This session will talk about the challenges and successes of Finance Forward, an event series across the U.S. that set out to do just that earlier this year.
