Inclusive growth has become a big part of Indiana’s economic development conversation over the last 18 months. We know that asset building- the building block of prosperity- forms an essential component in new approaches like inclusive growth.
But what is inclusive growth? How are local collaborative efforts adopting and implementing this viewpoint? How can funders, financial services organizations, and stakeholders work together to make sure asset-building strategies are woven into inclusive growth efforts? What are the relevant financial security tools and capabilities workers and families need to engage in and benefit from inclusive growth?
The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and Asset Funders Network joined to explore these and other issues in in a learning roundtable breakfast with leading policymakers, civic leaders, and funders.
