Highlights: Local Innovation. National Impact.
Yesterday, Prosperity Now's Vice President for Policy and Research, Ida Rademacher, participated in a webinar discussion hosted by the New America Foundation titled Local Innovation. National Impact.
The webinar, billed only somewhat hyperbolically on The Ladder as the greatest asset building webinar of all time, was indeed a huge success. Ida started the discussion by talking about emerging strategies that municipal governments can use to advance their efforts at financial inclusion. Ida was joined by Cathie McMahon of the New York City Office of Financial Empowerment, Leigh Phillips of the San Francisco Office of Financial Empowerment and Matt Phillips with the Department of the Treasury.
Highlights from the webinar, including full video and individual PowerPoint presentations from each discussant, are available on New America's Asset Building Program website. Check them out there and leave comments or questions for Ida below!
