The Financial Empowerment Network hosted our signature Bank On Washington annual forum in person at the Yakima Valley Convention Center on October 24th and 25th after two years of virtual gatherings.
The forum centered on understanding the un-and under-banked in Washington, exploring their financial service needs, and crafting community-led solutions. We explored the experience of folks who are furthest from opportunity and have been historically and are currently excluded from mainstream financial services. On Day One, we focused on the strengths of our communities, and on Day Two, we tackled structural changes and solutions.
Throughout both days, we reconnected as a community of providers, reignited our passion for supporting the financial wellness of all Washingtonians, and built solutions based on the resilience of all communities as we emerged from the isolation and challenges of the pandemic.
Who attended Financial institutions, asset-building coalitions, community-based organizations, government and policymakers, and individuals dedicated to the financial well-being of all Washingtonians!
