Bank On Washington: BankOn WA Forum – Exciting Updates, Take a Look!

September 27, 2021

Exciting news! We have updated our schedule – now you can see more information about our speakers and their presentations! And check out the closing panel we have added – The Future of FinTech: Research, Pitfalls and Possibilities. We are excited to bring together folks from across sectors to explore what research is telling us about the use of FinTech in historically marginalized communities, and what lessons we can take forward here in Washington. 

Join us October 19th and 20th from 8:30 am – 12:45 pm Pacific Time to explore what FinTech means for unbanked, low-income, and historically marginalized individuals and communities. What is the current FinTech landscape? What does research tell us about inclusion and financial wellness? And where are we headed from here?
