FDIC Hosts AEI Roundtable Discussion on Communities of Color and Youth Banking in Milwaukee
The FDIC is sponsoring a Milwaukee Alliance for Economic Inclusion (AEI) roundtable. The objective is to find ways to increase the financial resilience of youth in Milwaukee’s African American and Latino communities and address the disparities in their unbanked and underbanked rates.
Presenters will highlight the importance of transaction accounts and describe ways to improve economic security through banking relationships. The meeting will close with a discussion on how to improve the reach of workforce development, targeting youth aged 14 to 24, and explore ways to introduce mainstream banking.
