Inclusiv

At Inclusiv, we believe that true financial inclusion and empowerment is a fundamental right. We dedicate ourselves to closing the gaps and removing barriers in financial opportunities for distressed and underserved communities by providing capital, making connections and building capacity, developing innovative products and services for community development credit unions (CDCUs) and working to transform local progress into lasting change at the national level. Founded in 1974, Inclusiv is headquartered in Lower Manhattan with offices in Madison, WI and Atlanta, GA. Inclusiv offers a wide range of advocacy, educational, training, investment, marketing, and outreach programs to support and assist CDCUs.

Director of Technology and Innovation

The Director of Technology and Innovation will play a key role at Inclusiv, leading strategy and execution of our Inclusiv Technology initiatives which leverage technology and impact data to expand financial inclusion in underserved communities. The low-income communities and communities of color that Inclusiv Network credit unions serve seek both “high-touch” and “high-tech” support to meet their financial service needs and advance in their financial lives. Inclusiv Technology recognizes both those needs and develops innovative technology tools and market guidance that enable credit unions to deliver efficient and measureable high-touch services, such as financial coaching on our Pathways to Financial Empowerment platform, and high-tech banking and lending services, through partnerships with mission-aligned FinTech providers.  

 

The Director of Tech and Innovation will work with senior leadership to set strategy for Inclusiv Technology engagement with technology partners and identifying priority technology investments. The Director will also oversee the data analysis of our technology initiatives to evaluate and report on their effectiveness and impact on credit unions and the low-income communities they serve.
