In a joint announcement today, OFN and BBVA Compass put out a call for the next generation of dedicated CDFI leaders to apply to the Opportunity Fellows Program. This joint initiative is designed to spur greater access to capital by boosting CDFI leadership, developing the tools and skills needed to increase their impact in under-resourced communities.
"We're carrying forward the Opportunity Fellows Program for 2018 because the importance of CDFIs cannot be overstated, and we must step up and give their leaders the tools and skills they need to thrive in today's ever-changing world," said BBVA Compass Director of Corporate Responsibility and Reputation Reymundo Ocañas. "Last year's inaugural class came ready to learn and challenge the status quo and share their experiences, and we expect to round up an equally compelling group of leaders for 2018."
