In this Episode:
Rodney Hood, Board Member, National Credit Union Administration joins the program for the inaugural episode of Keys to Financial Inclusion. Rodney shares his 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.
…For me, personally, inclusive community development means that you are creating opportunities and hope for, again, this whole spectrum of folks that I’ve mentioned, not just the low to moderate income and minority, but also are you including those that are disabled? Are we looking at those that traditionally have not been a part of the mainstream economy and those who have not had access to shared prosperity? — Rodney Hood
