For the first time in three years, the largest annual CDFI industry convening is back in person! From October 18–21, CDFI practitioners, funders, and investors, policymakers, and other industry stakeholders will gather for the 2022 OFN Conference in New York City to learn, share, and network.

Session Description:Post George Floyd, many corporations and industries made promises to invest in BIPOC led organizations and communities. The CDFI industry was no different. Many CDFIs pledged to increase access to capital and resources for BIPOC led organizations. While these efforts have pumped billions into these organizations, there is still more to be done if we are to address growing inequities, provide equitable access and center racial equity in our operations. In order to truly move the needle on these issues, CDFIs will need to address the barriers that are inherent in their own lending practices and policies. In this session we will unpack those barriers and focus on solutions that could be employed to dismantle barriers and center equity.

Shellon Fraser, Project Director, RACE Lending Initiative (moderator)
Dr. Judy Lubin, Center for Urban and Racial Equity
