Consumer Financial Protection Bureau - Office of Financial Education Webinar

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau invites you to join on a webinar introducing the work of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) in the area of financial education. The webinar will take place on Thursday, March 15, 2012, from 2:30 – 3:30 pm Eastern Time.

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act) created the CFPB to protect Americans from unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices relating to consumer financial products. The Office of Financial Education (OFE) is one of six offices within the CFPB’s Division of Consumer Engagement and Education (CEE). The Dodd Frank Act charges the Office of Financial Education with developing and implementing initiatives to educate and empower consumers to make better-informed financial decisions.

The webinar will feature Gail Hillebrand, Associate Director of the Division of Consumer Education and Engagement, and Camille Busette, Assistant Director of the Office of Financial Education. Ms. Hillebrand and Ms. Busette will discuss the vision and work of CEE and OFE and how these offices can learn from and strengthen the work of financial education practitioners. The webinar will also include time for questions and discussion with participants.
