Lives Interrupted: Bridging Financial Transitions





Learn more


Join us for our FIRST research event of 2021 and the FIRST from the Center of Excellence for Consumer Financial Lives in Transition.

This two-day virtual event brings academics, industry experts and leaders from the credit union system together to explore how consumers’ financial lives are changing and what credit unions can do to keep up. 

Led by Filene Fellow Lisa Servon, we'll be answering the question, how can credit unions leverage their unique value proposition to meet members’ financial needs, in their time of need?

  • Gain an understanding of how financial well-being drives demand for financial services, how financial well-being is shaped by life and livelihood transitions, and how credit unions can expand their reach and deepen their relationships by building bridges across new gaps created by a changing economy. 
  • Walk away with practical resources to serve financially vulnerable populations, including people facing insecurities in employment and healthcare, independent workers and small businesses, and individual and families involved with the criminal justice system. 
  • Learn how to implement new approaches to aligning members’ needs with credit union offerings and operations through interactive workshops with Filene researchers.

This event is free to Filene Members. Register today!
