Financial Literacy Seminar Series

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is an email announcement about a financial literacy seminar series that may be of interest to some of our readers.

The Federal Reserve Board and the Business School at George Washington University are happy to announce a new seminar series on financial literacy. The goal of the seminar series is to present and discuss cutting-edge research on financial literacy and to bring academics, practitioners, policy makers and others in the DC area together. We are working hard to put together six great seminars this fall and hope to attract people from a wide range of backgrounds.

Olivia Mitchell will present in first seminar on Friday, October 7th. Dr. Mitchell is the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans Professor at the Wharton School and her work is probably familiar to anyone who found their way to our email list. The seminar will be in the Kendall Auditorium, in Duqu?s Hall, at the George Washington University School of Business (GWSB), 2201 G Street NW. The seminar will start at promptly at 3:30pm and will end at 5pm. In addition to a presentation by Dr. Mitchell, we will have a panel of distinguished public policy experts to discuss key issues on financial literacy. Finally, a reception from 5pm to 6 pm will give attendees and the speakers a chance to talk informally and meet each other.

Not all the seminars will be this 'star-studded' but the format will be similar. The seminars will be from 3:30-5:00pm with a reception 5:00pm. Our current dates (the rest are on Tuesdays) are October 18, November 1, November 15, November 29 and December 13.

Since this is a brand new seminar series and we are still trying to optimize out logistics, it would help us to know if you plan to attend the Oct 7th seminar. (This is not a commitment, but it would help us plan.) If it helps, you planning, we will make a recording of the seminar, probably not in real-time, but it will be available on our to-be-created website. More details to follow.

Please direct any questions, comments or suggestions to our series email.
