    Financial Inclusion Week 2017

    Financial Inclusion Week is a week of global conversation on the most important steps to advance financial inclusion. From October 30 – November 3, 2017, stakeholders will explore how new products and partnerships are empowering customers.  Financial Inclusion Week is an initiative of the Center for Financial Inclusion and aims to strengthen the diverse community of players involved in building a more inclusive financial ecosystem. 

    Digital channels are revolutionizing the way that customers access financial products, and consequentially are changing the landscape of the industry. Financial service providers are re-thinking the ways that they design and offer financial products. In addition, legacy providers are increasingly partnering with financial technology startups to expand their service offerings and to reach previously under-served customer segments. These new products, and new partnerships bring great new potential for creating a more inclusive global financial ecosystem. However, they may also bring new problems – such as data security and client protection issues.  During Financial Inclusion Week 2017, partner organizations around the globe will hold conversations focused on how new products and partnerships are advancing financial inclusion, not just access.

    We are currently calling for organizations to commit to joining the conversation by hosting a Financial Inclusion Week event.  These events can take any format – in the past partners have held large conferences, small internal meetings, webinars, and twitter chats.  If you want to learn more, we encourage you to check out the run-down of past events.

    Please feel free to reach out to Allyse McGrath at with any questions on how to start planning and sign up to be a partner today to receive updates and resources.
