Who can be involved in Financial Inclusion Week (FIW)?
The goal is to have a range of participants from multiple geographies as well as different stakeholders, including banks, insurance companies, payments companies, telcos, policy-makers, regulators, NGOs, microfinance institutions, investors, financial inclusion support organizations, credit reporting service providers, financial capability experts, fintech companies, etc. Financial institutions may also use this as an opportunity for corporate citizenship outreach or for deepening internal understanding of financial inclusion.
What does it mean to be a FIW partner?
FIW partners commit to participating in the Week by hosting a conversation or contributing insights on the year's theme.
What kind of event should I host?
Pick the format that works best for you, whether that is a large virtual event such as a webinar or smaller in-person conversation. Some events will include people from one organization and others will include a range of diverse stakeholders from the private and public sectors.
How will the outcomes of Financial Inclusion Week be publicized?
CFI will publicize all FIW events on this website and will promote participation for webinars and online events. Tweets and blog posts will be captured on an interactive web page throughout the week. CFI will also share partner outputs following FIW including event highlights, photos, and key takeaways.
Why should my organization participate?
Achieving financial inclusion is within our reach, but only if we work together to address the biggest gaps. When people come together to consider this question, they emerge with new insights, energy and focus. By serving as a FIW partner, you are playing a vital role as a leader in financial inclusion and helping to build a strong community, while focusing on the work of your organization.
How do I participate?
FIW is intended to be easy to participate in – explore past events and think about what conversation or conversations your community needs to have. Then, sign up here to receive updates from the FIW Team. We will also provide resources to help you plan your participation in FIW.
