Digital Promise is hosting the Convening on Financial Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom on February 13th at the Milken Institute School of Public Health on the campus of The George Washington University to explore the ways micro-credentials are shaping the state of financial literacy professional learning for educators.

At this event, stakeholders from the personal finance education space will gather to review the financial literacy micro-credentials developed by the Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center (GFLEC) and analyze the research that resulted from their implementation. Participants will discuss the implications of these findings and identify next steps to continue strengthening supports for personal finance education in today’s increasingly complex economic world.
