Change the Narrative Fellows Speak as Keynote Panelists at National FSS Conference

This year, Compass Working Capital partnered with WOMEN’S WAY to offer FSS participants the opportunity to participate in the Change the Narrative Fellowship, which trains women with lived experiences of economic insecurity to share their personal stories to generate awareness of racial and gender inequities. Five Change the Narrative Fellows participated in this year’s National FSS Conference as keynote panelists for a discussion about their experience in the program and their hopes for the future of FSS.
