Advancing Communities

Apr 21, 2020

In this Special Series Episode of the Advancing Communities Podcast, Cinnaire CSO Jim Peffley digs deep into the impact of COVID-19 on CDFIs and the partners we serve. Five experienced CDFI leaders candidly share their strategies, best practices and experience on navigating and learning through COVID-19 and beyond. The podcast is a recording of a webinar and addresses frontline perspectives on:

  • Experiences they are addressing with the crisis as leaders in the industry
  • Perspectives on what they each learned from the financial crisis of 2008/2011 and how that learning applies to COVID-19
  • Advice for CDFIs as they navigate COVID-19 challenges
  • A framework for viewing the next three months and next year
