Panelists & Speakers
The Expanding Prosperity Impact Collaborative (EPIC) is an initiative of the Aspen Institute’s Financial Security Program. EPIC is designed to harness the knowledge of a wide cross-section of experts working in applied, practitioner, academic, government, and industry settings towards the goal of illuminating and solving critical drivers of financial inequity and insecurity. EPIC will focus on one distinct issue at a time that is critical to the financial security of Americans but not widely understood. By focusing on one issue at a time, EPIC will over time piece together a mosaic of different financial challenges that need to be addressed. The connections between these issues will build cross-sector interest and support for a more strategic and inclusive approach to financial security in the U.S. For more information, please visit www.aspenepic.org.
