FPP Coalition 2022 Sixth Annual Online Conference Content Topics

Session Title:

Insights from Five Financial Education Policy Convenings 

Session Description:

In 2021, the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) partnered with the Council for Economic Education (CEE) to host five convenings focused on specific challenges in the financial education space.  These convenings touched on policy topics ranging from better supports for rural communities to best use of legislative dollars for financial education.

This rapid Virtual Session will highlight major themes from those conversations and invite input from participants on further lines of inquiry that could position the field to ensure Americans have the knowledge, confidence, and opportunity to live their best financial life.


Session Title:

Fragmented Skills, Fragmented Progress:  How Digital Skills Impact the Way Organizations Achieve Their Mission

Session Description:

Learn about three levels of digital skills, how digital skills gaps determine experiences and outcomes for staff and clients, and the strategies that are helping organizations operate more efficiently, remain mission-focused, and serve diverse clients more equitably.


Session Title:

Looking Back to Move Forward: Reimagining an Equitable Tax Code that Works for All 

Session Description:

This interactive session will illuminate the truth of Florida’s tax code:  the Sunshine State’s reputation as a “low tax” state belies the reality that it is, in fact, a high-tax state for residents with low incomes.  Moreover, this session will uncover what it means to have one of the most upside-down tax structures in the entire country, and why we need to rewrite the rules.

The session will also focus on new frontiers for public policy, with an emphasis on the prospect of a state-level Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), also known as the Working Floridians Tax Rebate (WFTR). Participants will actively engage to gain a better understanding of Florida’s tax code and the need to explore new policy frontiers.


Session Title:

Top 5 Engaging Personal Finance Activities from NGPF

Session Description:

In this session, Financial Capability practitioners will get hands-on experience with activities ranging from online games and quizzes to a weekly financial current events series!  The goal of the rapid session is for practitioners to gain more resources they can begin using in their learning environments right away!  Practitioners will navigate the NGPF site to discover where each resource type is located for practitioners who support others learning Personal Financial Literacy, Business, Economics and more!
