April 26: Financial Wellbeing from a Multicultural Perspective
This session will provide a high-level overview of what financial wellbeing means from various cultural perspectives, using data from our recent survey.
June 22: Opportunities for Credit Unions to Serve Growing Multicultural Populations in MN
This session will provide a further “deep dive” into the financial needs of Mexicans, Hmong, and African Americans – which are the largest growing ethnic groups in Minnesota. We’ll share practical examples of how credit unions can meet those needs via products, community outreach, staff, and more.
August 10: How can we do better? Addressing and closing the Wealth Gaps in Minnesota
Our final session will focus on the current wealth gaps in Minnesota. We’ll take a closer look at our own bias around lending, branding, and risk; and explore practical ways to overcome those biases to improve financial wellbeing for all.
