Join Bay Area funders, nonprofits, public agencies, and policymakers on November 3rd for a conversation around fostering economic equity in the Bay Area’s rapidly changing economy.   This event is designed to bring together the Bay Area asset building field, from the experts to the newbies!

How are traditional asset building strategies such as homeownership and entrepreneurship adapting to the changing Bay Area economy?  How can new research help us better support low-income families to benefit from regional growth, instead leaving them behind? Come learn with the asset-building community about strategies that help working families build their savings, financial capability, and wealth to foster a more robust and equitable region.

Our morning plenary will feature a “ State of The State” update on key statewide asset building policies being proposed or implemented, and how you can take action to support these initiatives. 

Following the plenary, we'll break into Conver-sessions.  Join us as we disrupt the traditional, panel-led break-out sessions to elevate local perspectives in these audience-driven conversations.  Come ready to share your successes, challenges, questions and insights in a dynamic discussion among peers.
