Technology has spurred monumental changes in both the financial services industry and civil society. There remain many concerns about how technology can reinforce discrimination and economic exploitation. There is also potential in emerging technologies and innovation that can be harnessed for responsible credit access, for instance, offering tools that were unimaginable only a short time ago.
This panel will discuss the promises and perils of innovation in the context of financial inclusion, fair lending, and the role of policy in fostering economic and racial equity.
PANELISTS: Kelly Cochran, Deputy Director, FinRegLab; Fabrice Coles, VP, Bank Policy Institute; Chi Chi Wu, Staff Attorney, National Consumer Law Center
MODERATOR: Courtney Robinson, Financial Inclusion Lead, Square
