Designing for Healthier, Wealthier Cities

This session requires RSVP, and access will only be available to badge types listed under "Primary Access." More information coming soon.

How can modern cities ensure a financial safety net for citizens despite tightening budgets? This workshop will dive into concrete policy ideas gleaned from 3 years of financial wellbeing research with FinTech companies, banks, credit unions, non-profits, and cities. From child savings accounts to improving SNAP benefits to easing Gig Economy worker woes, we’ll dive into ways cities can advance citizens’ financial health and put in place testing plans to ensure their ideas deliver.
