This TEDxWilmington Salon is a Summit on Financial Empowerment that has been developed in partnership with Stand By Me, a joint project of the United Way of Delaware and the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services.
The salon will feature speakers who are involved in groundbreaking work in the field of personal financial security. Attendees will hear from 15 educators, nonprofit leaders, public officials, employers and researchers who agree that without financial security, Americans are held back from achieving higher-level goals in life.
Speakers and topics at the Financial Empowerment Summit include:
