OFN's sixth Small Business Finance Forum brings 300+ mission-driven lenders and their partners and allies together in Chicago starting today. This two-day event is the only one of its kind to focus on the unique needs and challenges of this important lending sector.
Since 2011, when OFN launched our Equity initiative, we have worked to build a strong relationship between Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and the CDFI industry.
OFN’s mission is to align capital with social, economic, and political justice. Six years ago, we began to explore how this mission aligns with or advances racial equity, and we committed to examining racial diversity, equity, and inclusion across the organization, Board, and CDFI industry.
