“We want to see everyone thrive financially, and are committed to finding new ways to reach the Black community with information we know will make an impact -- not just to individuals but entire generations,” said Byna Elliott, global head of Advancing Black Pathways at JPMorgan Chase. “We’re excited to partner across our business and with experts in the community to demystify common financial health questions and empower communities across the country.”

“What we do today impacts the future of our communities, which is why we’re working to create a stronger economic foundation for Hispanic and Latino communities,” Silvana Montenegro, global head of Advancing Hispanics & Latinos at JPMorgan Chase. “To do this right, it is critical to empower them with useful information and resources to help all generations of Latinos achieve their financial dreams and goals.”

“There are so many important conversations around financial freedom, entrepreneurship, wealth and legacy building, many of which I cover on my radio show Everyday Wealth, but too often Black and Hispanic audiences are left out. I am honored to join JPMorgan Chase in centering communities of color around creating generational wealth,” said Soledad O’Brien, CEO of SO’B Productions.

“Latinos are among the most resilient and entrepreneurial communities in the country, but often lack access to the tools and resources we need to achieve financial freedom,” said Gaby Natale, Triple EMMY-Winning Journalist, Best-Selling Author, Motivational Speaker and Entrepreneur. “I look forward to participating in this Summit and sharing what I have learned about pathways toward financial wellbeing.”

The Summit is open to the public and pre-registration is required. To register for the event or access more information: All attendees are required to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination in order to enter. Masks are strongly encouraged.
