Sherry Salway Black, director of the Partnership for Tribal Governance, National Congress of American Indians, will be on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis at 12:15 p.m. Monday, May 13, in Brown Hall’s Brown Lounge (Room 218).

Her talk, “Securing Our Futures: Building Financial Capability for Life,” is sponsored by the Brown School’s Center for Social Development (CSD) and the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.

The lecture, part of the CSD’s Financial Capability Lecture Series,
is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided, but registration is required and can be made here.

Financial life is increasingly complex. Payments, credit, saving and investing are challenging for all households, rich and poor alike. Financial capability — knowledge, skills and access to quality financial services — is essential for managing daily affairs and maintaining household stability.

Salway Black joined the staff of the National Congress of American Indians as director of the Partnership for Tribal Governance initiative in May 2009. She has served on the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability, whose purpose is to assist the American people in understanding financial matters and making informed financial decisions.
