Free two-part webinar: The Hidden Financial Lives of America's Poor and Middle Class

Stanford Social Innovation Review, with support from Citi Foundation, is hosting a two-webinar series in 2016.   The Hidden Financial Lives of America's Poor and Middle Class take place Thursday, January 21, 2016 and Thursday, February 4, 2016.   From the website,
An unprecedented look at the financial lives of working Americans and new insights for designing policies, programs and products that can help make their lives better.

There’s no question that the American economy has undergone dramatic change over the last 30 years—stagnant wages, rising inequality, automation, freelancing, and globalization. The impact of these economic changes on the lives of low- and moderate-income Americans has been difficult to see, until now. New research indicates that current programs and policies for helping families escape poverty, build stability, move up the ladder, and invest in the future are based on an outdated understanding of what their financial lives looks like—one that no longer reflects reality.


In this complimentary two-part SSIR Live! webinar series, researchers from New York University and the Center for Financial Services Innovation, will be joined by experts from the Aspen Institute, and Pew Charitable Trusts, the University of Michigan, and the Urban Institute to present new research findings, their implications, and insights for designing new policies, programs, and products to help improve the lives of low- and moderate-income Americans.
