EMN Annual Conference 2022

Event Annual conference

Our 19th EMN Annual Conference will take place in Brussels on 16th-17th June 2022. Save the date in your agendas!

Financial Inclusion and the Future of Work

Two years of a game-changing pandemic, the advent of artificial intelligence and other new technologies, together with innovative EU policies regarding youth and social economy, all cast a bright light on the truly pivotal moment microfinance is finding itself in. Anticipation and forward-thinking will be instrumental mindsets in carving a path for the sector and let it reach its full potential in the fight for financial inclusion. And this is precisely what the 19th EMN Annual Conference will aim to foster.

The sheer number of missing profiles in the entrepreneurial landscape, as highlighted in the latest edition of the OECD’s “Missing entrepreneurs”, must make us ask ourselves how financial inclusion practitioners can serve this major societal shift that will see less salaried employment, more self-employment, and the urgent need to take into account all vulnerable groups and the challenges brought by climate change.

The conference

? Finally back to its 2-day format, with pre-conference activities on the 15th June, the conference will look at the current state-of-play, find out what our focus should be at EU level, discuss the role MFIs and other financial inclusion actors are destined to play in the near future, and much more.

? Through a carefully crafted mix of high-level addresses, concrete down-to-business workshops, and dedicated networking moments, the 2022 EMN Annual Conference will once more bring the sector together for the highest profile event on financial inclusion and microfinance in the region.
