MassSaves 12th Annual Summit

The MassSaves Financial Health and Wellness Summit is an annual event for teachers, financial educators, community practitioners and supporters from all backgrounds to network, share and learn to improve financial education. 

The theme for our 12th Annual Summit is understanding and reducing racial inequities in wealth and income. Sessions will focus on understanding the data, exploring empathy and listening (as well as self-care for community providers), and will highlight specific issues like small businesses, working class populations and living wage jobs.

The Summit will take place virtually on Tuesdays throughout October. Each Tuesday we will host a morning session and an afternoon session, with opportunities for participation and networking.

We encourage registrants to come to any/all sessions they're interested in.
