Inclusiv, in collaboration with the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), invite you to join us for a joint Inclusiv/Capital and Inclusiv/Black Communities webinar: Capital Resources for Credit Unions to Advance Racial Equity in Black Communities.
Join Cathi Kim, Director of Inclusiv/Capital, George E. Ashton III, Managing Director at LISC Strategic Investments, and Tiffany Royster, Senior Director of Equity Investment Originations at LISC Strategic Investments, for a webinar on capital resources available for Minority Depository Institutions (MDIs). This webinar is open to all credit unions with an emphasis on encouraging Black credit unions and credit unions seeking to advance racial equity in Black communities to register. During this session, Cathi will review the capital resources available through Inclusiv, such as secondary capital, and the Racial Equity and Resilience Investment Fund. George and Tiffany will share information on how credit unions can access the resources provided by LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund. Participants will have a chance to ask questions about the eligibility requirements for these capital programs during the webinar.
