A Juneteenth Forum on the Future of Inclusion

Please join the Georgetown Law’s Institute of International Economic Law and the Black Economic Alliance for a conversation on Can Black and Brown Banks Compete in a Digital Economy? in celebration of Juneteenth. The event, which will be facilitated with help from the Brookings Institution as our Knowledge Partner, will take place virtually on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 from 1:00 – 3:15 p.m. EDT.

Speakers will include leading technologists, members of Congress, minority bank CEOs, regulators, and philanthropists.

Technology has become an essential tool for Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) and Minority Depository Institutions (MDIs), and yet CDFIs and MDIs have historically been unable to secure and operate technology tailored to their needs and enabling them to scale and serve their communities fully. The forum will serve as the first in a series of cutting-edge programs, culminating in Washington’s annual Fintech Week conference, designed to tackle longstanding obstacles of financial inclusion and access.

We thank VISA for their generous support of this event.
