Operation HOPE Founder to participate in the Bankers Forum; event flanks the HOPE Global Financial Dignity Summit
ATLANTA – October 17, 2013—Operation HOPE (HOPE), the leading global financial dignity nonprofit, announced that Operation HOPE Founder, Chairman and CEO John Hope Bryant will join a distinguished panel for the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta event themed: Opportunities and Challenges in Low- to Moderate-Income Communities: Council of Stakeholders, on November 13 at Georgia State University. The Banker's Forum is an independent pre-summit event.
"We can think global, but we have to act local. Everything is local. Community building is local, and is impossible without a stable and engaged banking environment. Yet bankers and banking may be understandably confused about their role post global economic crisis, and post Dodd-Frank legislation. Well, they have a prominent and critically important role to play, and we have to help them to restore a level of trust and confidence in our communities, and to chart a meaningful and sustainable role forward for their businesses." Bryant continued, "this forum for me, is about that. Helping them find a way to do well, and do good to, sustainably."
