Alliance for Economic Inclusion (SOLD OUT)


"Defining Results:  Understanding and Measuring Success!"

Speakers will be discussing some tough questions:

Why did the number of unbanked households drop from 12.1% to 5% in Metropolitan Kansas City? What are the outcomes of 100,000 page views of the Money Smart KC website? What impact comes from over 60 AEI member and Money Smart partner organizations teaching financial education to over 30,000 participants?

How do we measure the impact of connecting tens of thousands of low- and moderate-income families to the internet? Why do we need to define what quality financial coaching looks like? How does KC SourceLink measure support to over 2,200 small businesses?
