The entire Leviticus team assembled at our headquarters in Tarrytown – the first time we’ve all been in the office since the pandemic! Following a delicious lunch and cake, we wrapped up our work and prepared to head to the Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) 2022 Conference in New York City.
After 2 years of virtual convenings, the enthusiasm for learning, sharing and networking is palpable. According to OFN, “This year’s theme – Invest in Change – is more than a theme. It’s a call to action. It defines the work that CDFIs and our partners do every day to provide economic opportunity for all.”
Two Leviticus staffers are participating in panels at the conference.
Kayla Jeffrey, Senior Investment Officer, will discuss “Bending the Arc: How CDFIs Can Change Policies to Address Racial Equity”; and Colleen Ryan, Resource Development and Communications Officer, will discuss “Small Businesses and Big Choices: The Growing Small Business Financial Protection Movement.”
We’re looking forward to meeting with our colleagues from near and far and learning how they’re meeting the call to action of Investing in Change!
