ACCES, as part of its 2023 World of Difference campaign, is focusing on Economic Empowerment. With this year’s campaign, ACCES will support jobseekers, alumni, and the greater ACCES community with learning opportunities and resources to enhance their financial well-being.
The foundation of this work is the belief that everyone, especially newcomers, racialized and marginalized people, should have access to financial guidance, programs, and services to help them participate in our economy for their own well-being and success.
Interac, a lead corporate donor, recognizes the importance of this work. Recently, in partnership with Conscious Economics, Interac has developed some key Mindfulness & Money programming, rooted in the concept of financial therapy, to help break down some of the barriers Gen Zs face to feel in control of their money and build their financial confidence. You can read more about the research behind this work and the launch of their programing in a recent Interac news release entitled “Gen Z anxiously navigates financial firsts and shifts everyday spending behaviour amid current economic conditions.”
ACCES is proud to promote the economic empowerment work that Interac is doing, and we appreciate the generous support.
