Financial Inclusion Week 2019

As some organizations pursue financial inclusion as their ultimate goal, others are driving toward financial health or the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Meanwhile, financial institutions and fintechs are aiming to profitably serve low-income markets.

In the face of these trends, we can’t help but ask: What is financial inclusion for?

Financial Inclusion: For What? What For? is a call to action for our community to reexamine our goals and renew efforts to achieve them. During Financial Inclusion Week this year, October 21-25, 2019, we invite you to convene around this question to reexamine, redefine, and align our goals.

Now in its 5th year, Financial Inclusion Week is an opportunity to strengthen the diverse community of players involved in building a more inclusive financial ecosystem.

The objectives of Financial Inclusion Week are:

  • To bring the entire financial inclusion community together to explore issues of financial inclusion beyond access
  • To create leadership opportunities among diverse stakeholders
  • To create dialogue and community
  • To foster partnership and coordination within the financial industry

Location: Worldwide

Dates: October 21, 2019 - October 25, 2019
