Interrupting Racism Resources

Continuing the conversation from our workshop, below are resources staff at Working Credit lean on to learn.

At Working Credit we recognize the deep seated discrimination within the financial institutions we promote. Credit has a long history of being used as a tool to exclude marginalized communities.

Diversifying: Does it feel like the financial system is stacked against you? For many of us, it is. Especially if you’re Black or Brown, a woman, or single. In Diversifying, we explore why the traditional rules of money management no longer apply to new generations. Hosted by Delyanne Barros, better known as Delyanne The Money Coach, Diversifying demystifies and humanizes money by examining the culture we make it in and how to make it work for you.
