“NGL is committed to supporting diversity, equity and inclusion not only on a local and employee level, but also through our efforts in the community and in the financial services and insurance industries. We hope to decrease the financial disparities the African American community experiences and create awareness surrounding financial health and wellness,” said Dave Anderson, NGL Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
According to the Personal Finance (P-Fin) Index 2019 survey by TIAA Institute, there is a strong link between financial literacy and financial wellness among African Americans. Those who are more financially literate are more likely to plan and save for retirement, to have non-retirement savings and to better manage their debt.
Knut Olson, NGL President & CEO will introduce Dr. Dennis Kimbro who will speak on “The Economy in Mind.” Dr. Kimbro is an educator, best-selling author, business school professor and researcher in the field of management, entrepreneurship, and human capital.
