OneUnited Bank – the largest, first, and only Black-owned digital bank in America – has announced Emmy award-winning actress, author, and comedian Tiffany Haddish as the latest addition to its All-Star Presenter's lineup for its upcoming virtual conference.
"We're excited to have Tiffany Haddish join our All-Star Presenters," Teri Williams – President & COO of OneUnited Bank – shared in a press statement. "She brings unique expertise, knowledge, and life experiences from foster care to homelessness to success that will help our community close the racial wealth gap! Together, we can make financial literacy a core value of the Black community and create generational wealth."
The co-sponsored Visa conference will be held on June 19, 2021, better known as Juneteenth, and focus on closing the racial wealth gap within the Black community. "Visa is committed to supporting underrepresented communities, including the Black community and women entrepreneurs, and providing them with financial and social resources," said Mary Ann Reilly – Senior Vice President & Head of North America Marketing at Visa.
"We recognize that access to financial tools and education is disproportionate for the Black community and are proud to partner with OneUnited Bank on this critical cause to help close the racial wealth gap."
As part of OneUnited's core values, the #OneTransaction Campaign encourages Black families to claim One Transaction in 2021 – which includes savings and investments, a profitable business, an improved credit score, homeownership, insurance, or a will – in addition to offering actionable steps to help them achieve these goals.
Other All-Star Presenters for the conference include Tiffany "The Budgetnista" Aliche, podcast host Chris Browning, CNBC Senior Personal Finance Correspondent Sharon Epperson, among many others.
