In this Episode:
Jeanne Milliken Bonds, Professor of the Practice for Impact Investment and Sustainable Finance at the University of North Carolina’s Kenan Flagler Business School, joins the program for the fourth episode of Keys to Financial Inclusion. Jeanne shares her thoughts on what inclusive community development looks like, and the financial challenges facing families today. Discover how policy makers, regulators, foundations, nonprofits and businesses can work together to promote greater equity and inclusion, particularly as it relates to persons with disabilities.
…when I think about the broad universe of community development, inclusive means that we have to have systems and processes and structures within community development that allow everyone to participate… So that inclusivity includes those with disabilities, as well as other challenges that individuals might have in our society. — Jeanne Milliken Bonds
