2021 OFN Virtual Conference
The OFN Conference is an annual gathering of 2,500 Community Development Finance Institution (CDFI) practitioners, funders, investors, and advocates. The conference provides a platform for attendees to be inspired, network, and learn as they pursue economic opportunity and justice for people and communities in America left behind by traditional finance. This year OFN is holding its annual conference virtually on October 19–21, 2021.
This inspiring, three-day event will engage public and private sector thought leaders in a dialogue with CDFIs about today's most pressing issues. Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) will host our annual Conference virtually — to bring you thought-provoking plenaries, informative breakout sessions, and time to connect with others in the CDFI industry — wherever you are.
Our theme “Finance Justice. Finance Change.” expands on last year’s theme to highlight how CDFIs drive change. CDFI finance helps combat racial inequality, works to move individuals and communities out of persistent poverty, and ensures that we will have a more just economic recovery.
This is a unique opportunity to take part in our event. All staff at CDFIs, and all impact-oriented students, investors, funders, and policymakers are encouraged to join as we explore how CDFIs finance justice and finance change.
