Episode 216: NEFE in November. Part 4

Have you experienced bias, discrimination, or exclusion by or from organizations, institutions or individuals within the financial services sector? A recent NEFE poll found that minority households are more likely to experience discrimination or feel blocked from the financial sector. It could be having a loan declined or offered less favorable terms than white households. These are just some of the many ways that financial discrimination presents itself. So what can we do about it?

This month we're celebrating the 30th anniversary of the National Endowment for Financial Education. To honor this special event, I've invited some of the team from NEFE to discuss some of the most recent topics and statistics from polls they have conducted that are impacting the personal finance space. We also talk about how financial literacy helped shape their personal lives.

NEFE”S Managing director of marketing and engagement Chelsea Norton, joins me for a second time as she explains what financial discrimination looks like and how to recognize some of the signs. Chelsea and I also discuss what steps you can take if you feel that you have been unfairly treated or discriminated against by a financial institution or service provider.
