CEO General Plenary Session: Financial Inclusion

At its core, financial inclusion means broadening the economic base, spurring dynamic business growth, and expanding opportunity for all members of society. This is both an ethical value as well as a financially-prudent one.

This CEO Plenary session, featuring American financial services executives, will explore innovative ways to expand economic opportunity to low-wealth populations using the principles of free market capitalism, with a vision of opportunity through inclusion, and prosperity through participation.
