Yale sociologist Frederick Wherry to take part in webinar on financial citizenship
“Financial Citizenship: Initial Research Findings on Credit, Dignity, and Trust,” a webinar focusing on research that was conducted by a team led by Frederick Wherry, professor of sociology and co-director of the Center for Cultural Sociology, will take place at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, June 28.
The research team investigated the impact of Mission Asset Fund’s zero-interest social loan program on the financial lives of clients. The webinar — which will feature early findings from one-on-one conversations with 58 clients — will focus on this new framework for understanding the role of credit in the lives of low-income people across the nation.
Presenters will also include Kristen Seefeldt of the University of Michigan, Anthony Alvarez of California State University–Fullerton, Colleen Briggs from JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Jose Quinonez from Mission Asset Fund.
