Financial Inclusion Week 2018 – Getting Inclusion Right
October 29 - November 2
The fourth annual Financial Inclusion Week (FIW) will take place from October 29 – November 2, 2018. Over the past three years over 80 partner organizations have engaged thousands of people worldwide to discuss the most pressing actions needed to advance financial inclusion globally. In 2018, we aim to continue the conversations from last year and engage an even wider community of stakeholders to discuss this year’s theme Getting Inclusion Right.
In 2018, the Center for Financial Inclusion at Accion is celebrating its 10th anniversary and using this as an opportunity to celebrate progress, but mostly to look to the future. We invite the FIW Community to join us in this journey and reflect on the question, “What do we need to get right?” What do we need to get right to ensure that gains in access lead to true improvements in the lives of the underserved? What are the great upcoming risks that we need to address now to protect customers? During FIW 2018, partner organizations around the globe will host conversations focused on how to bridge this gap and get inclusion right.
