In April 2021, in celebration of Financial Literacy Month, Financial Beginnings Oregon and Financial Beginnings Washington will host our first ever Virtual Financial Literacy Conference!
Adapted from our tried and true Financial Literacy Conference, the Virtual Speaker Series is sure to be a unique professional development opportunity for Oregonians and Washingtonians from schools, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, businesses, and the community. #2021FLC will highlight the critical importance of financial literacy, and connect attendees with resources and tools they can use to contribute to financial literacy efforts in their communities.
Each session at this year's Virtual Speaker Series will fall into one of two tracks - the Financial Education Volunteer Track and the Nonprofits and Educators Track:
Financial Education Volunteer Track
Sessions in this series are geared toward those who teach financial education as volunteers, and those who teach financial education or give financial advice professionally. These sessions will help you build your skills as a financial educator, giving you tools for communicating effectively, and helping you lead with equity and inclusion as you work with diverse communities.
Nonprofits and Educators Track
Sessions in this series are for folks who work in the education, nonprofit, and government sectors. These sessions will help you get more comfortable talking finances with the communities you serve, and will also introduce you to a whole host of financial resources and tools that you can bring back to those communities.
Financial literacy supporters have a critical role to play in Oregon and Washington's long-term health and success. We can't wait to bring these fantastic sessions to you in April!
