Innovating Financing Models to Help Unlock Pathways to Economic Mobility
Open to all MIE members, this conversation is a follow up to a MIE 2020 National Conference session from May 7 that was dedicated to co-learning in realtime, using the Open Space Technology (OST) facilitation methodology to crowdsource the collective wisdom of participants. This conversation will focus on the ways that impact investors and others in the ecosystem can mobilize to end income and wealth inequality. The goal of this gathering is to extend the dialogue started at the Conference, particularly looking at innovative finance as a pathway to narrowing these income and wealth gaps. Read on to learn more about what the conversation will cover and log in for a link to register. Attendees should come prepared for a highly participatory discussion and expect to continue the engagement in subsequent convenings in the months ahead.
In this conversation, we invite an open discussion and brainstorm on the creation of innovative financing models as mechanisms for increasing wealth for low-income individuals in the U.S. During this time together, we will recap the discussion held in the OST session on May 7, and talk through the why, how, and merits of individual Savings Accounts, and other ideas we may surface in the discussion to drive positive outcomes for lives and livelihoods.
