Each month, Cinnaire’s Advancing Communities Podcast brings together our Chief Strategy Officer, Jim Peffley, with thought leaders, policy makers and others who are making an impact in the community development and affordable housing industries. Our guests share their experiences and perspective on a range of topics, each supporting the belief that all people deserve the opportunities provided by living in healthy communities.
In this episode, Jim sits down with a panel to discuss CDFIs101, a virtual learning and networking series developed to bring young diverse professionals – tomorrow’s leaders – into the CDFI industry. CDFIs are today’s impact investors leading the way as our communities and our nation recover from the Covid crisis and address systemic racial inequities. At the same time, thousands of young professionals are now more motivated than ever to find impact careers dedicated to social, economic and political justice.
In this episode Jim talks with the organizers of CDFIs101 - Mark Pinsky, founding partner of CDFI Friendly America; Lenwood Long, CEO of the African American Alliance of CDFI CEOs (AAACC); and Bria Moss-Wilkerson, communications and operations manager at CDFI Friendly America, who is also an experienced young entrepreneur and a CDFI borrower. The panel discusses the CDFIs101 program specifically designed to bring growing CDFIs together with young professionals seeking careers with social impact.
