I am pleased to announce today that longtime friend and community philanthropist, Jodi Brockington, MSW, MPA, MsEd, has been appointed as the deputy director of HOPE Forums. Jodi’s first charge will be helping to provide leadership around and for the coming HOPE Global Financial Dignity Summit
Jodi is not new to Operation HOPE. She was actually the first ever program manager, or employee, tied to our now award-winning and global youth financial literacy work with Banking on Our Future. Jodi was there with us when we began this journey to empower youth in the 1990’s, and are pleased to have her back, providing core assistant to yet another pioneering area of silver rights empowerment work, with HOPE Forums.
You can reach Jodi Brockington here, should you have questions about what comes next for HOPE Forums, or more specifically, the HOPE Global Financial Dignity Summit, 2012.
Onward and with HOPE,
