In early 2021, our Executive Director, Kate Benedict, was thrilled to serve on the Oregon State Treasurer’s Financial Education Advisory Team. Over the course of five months, the team met to discuss where Oregon stands nationally when it comes to financial education and awareness.
The goal of these conversations was to provide substantive feedback and recommendations on how the Treasurer’s office could help improve the financial literacy of Oregonians of all backgrounds.
Chaired by the Treasurer, the group included experts who represented a diverse range of financial literacy and education priorities and organizations. They recently issued a final report of their recommendations!
