Financial life is increasingly complex. Payments, credit, saving and investing are challenging for all households, rich and poor alike. Financial capability is essential for managing daily affairs and maintaining household stability. Financial capability refers to personal knowledge and skills – along with access to quality financial services – that enable effective financial functioning.
Sherry Salway Black joined the staff of the National Congress of American Indians as director of the Partnership for Tribal Governance initiative in May 2009. She has served on the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability, whose purpose is to assist the American people in understanding financial matters and making informed financial decisions.
The Financial Capability Lecture Series is organized and supported by the Center for Social Development at Washington University’s Brown School and the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. This lecture is also co-sponsored by the Kathryn M. Buder Center for American Indian Studies.
We hope to see you there!
