Financial Inclusion Summit at Metropolitan Multi-Services Center, October 9

Date: October 09, 2018

Time: 10:00 am

National Disability Institute, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the City of Houston, Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities invite you to the Financial Inclusion Summit: Assuring People with Disabilities Access to Mainstream Financial Services.

This Summit will bring together leaders in government, the financial services sector, the disability and asset building communities and Fortune 100 companies to discuss strategies for improving financial access for individuals across the spectrum of disabilities.

The Summit is designed to accomplish several objectives:

  1. Improve understanding, knowledge and skills in the disability community to advance financial capability, which includes making better informed financial decisions, improving skills, and setting up a budget to make ends meet, helping set financial goals to advance greater financial stability and security;
  2. Build a bridge between financial institutions and the disability community to improve effective customer service and affordable and accessible financial products and services; and
  3. Develop a working action agenda from small group discussions to take place at the Summit that improves the availability of financial education and coaching for people with disabilities, as well as other ways the banking and disability communities can work together to advance economic self-sufficiency.

Join us on October 9, 2018 in Houston, Texas to design the next generation of collective efforts that seek to fulfill the promise of the Americans with Disabilities Act to bring people with disabilities more fully into the economic mainstream.

We hope you will be able to attend this important event.
