Focus on Fin Ed: The Policy Convenings Podcast - Episode Seven

The final episode of our limited series is a conversation between the heads of the two organizations who hosted the convenings – Dr. Billy Hensley (NEFE) and Nan Morrison (CEE). The two leaders discuss the behind-the-scenes work that went into developing the convenings, and how the right topics and the right stakeholders truly made the outcomes what they were.

Topics we cover in this episode

  • The benefits of having a diverse audience with different views on the topics.
  • The role the pandemic played in the discussions and who participated.
  • A preview of NEFE’s and CEE’s partnered advocacy work on K-12 financial education requirements.
  • How this work relates to CEE’s 2022 “Survey of the States” Report.
