If there’s one lesson we’ve learned from what we’re doing at Mastercard to help make economic growth more equitable, it’s about the power that comes from working together.
That’s why we’re excited to be part of the Economic Opportunity Coalition (EOC), led by Vice President Harris, which will be devoted to taking action to close the wealth and opportunity gaps that exist in our society.
Our In Solidarity initiative has helped us to lead in this space, and one element we’re especially focused on at Mastercard is financial inclusion. Along with a broad-based group of stakeholders, we continue to press for the creation of a national financial inclusion strategy for the U.S.—a step that would lay out a shared vision and ensure a coordinated approach to addressing the divides that all too many people know all too well.
There’s so much more to do to ensure success and prosperity are available to every American, no matter what community they call home, and we believe in the potential for progress through public-private partnership like this.
