With our global objectives in mind, we have been a leading voice among those who are calling for financial education for all—for children, young people, adults, and seniors—and we have advocated for high-impact, tailor-made approaches designed to close literacy gaps. In order to ensure that inequalities are addressed and financial education is effective, we have also identified and studied demographic groups that are at a disadvantage in terms of financial literacy and financial well-being: women, young adults, underserved racial and ethnic groups, and those with lower education and lower income.
This is just the beginning. As I look to the future, I want to build on our efforts and continue to push for GFLEC’s research and evaluations to result in widespread, concrete change in schools, workplaces, and communities.
Together, we will continue to drive change and improve financial literacy and financial well-being worldwide.
Onward and upward!
