Aspen Institute’s Financial Security Program hosted an insightful summit on June 16, 2021. Alongside Fiona Greig of JPMorgan Chase Institute, Jo Phillips of Nest Insight, and Katherine Lucas McKay of Aspen FSP, I participated as a panelist in the summit highlighting how policy, partners like employers, and product can unlock tremendous value for all.
Below is a summary of the summit provided by Aspen FSP and a link to their website with more detail from the summit.
