Free webinar, February 4: Finances of the poor and middle class

Stanford Social Innovation Review is holding the second of two free webinars under the umbrella The Hidden Financial Lives of America's Poor and Middle Class Thursday, February 4 from 2:00 – 3:00 pm.

According to the event webpage,

What are the implications of the U.S. Financial Diaries and other recent research and how can they provide insight to help families escape poverty, build stability, move up the ladder, and invest in the future? This webinar will look at innovative policies, products, and programs that seek to help households make ends meet, build security and stability, and invest for the future. We’ll consider innovative efforts in all sectors of society—from financial tech start-ups, to new policy approaches at all levels of government, and everything in between.

This webinar will:

  • Provide insight into how to redesign programs, policies, and products to better match the needs of low- and moderate-income Americans
  • Highlight examples of innovative products, programs, and policies that address income volatility and other challenges that households face now
  • Discuss the prospects for policy change at the federal, state and local level
