Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Comprised of seventeen different goals created by the United Nations and the Global Reporting Initiative to build meaningful business action. Financial education is a premier issue for our global status of living. LifeElevated Consulting, led by Dr. Sean Dixon, has worked with NFEC to address three specific SDGs:
Poor financial education has reached epidemic levels and created divides in poverty-stricken countries and social classes across the world. In fact, more than 10 per cent of the world’s population still lives in extreme poverty today. The National Financial Educators Council decided to take a stand against inequality, poverty, and poor education. Certifying NFEC as a B Corp aligns the NFEC’s mission with the larger, more abounding goals of the United Nations and the Global Reporting Initiative. The financial education programs developed, deployed, and scaled by NFEC have redefined what is means to have quality financial literacy. Economic inequality spans across many dimensions and is a persistent cause for concern. Financial education provides the opportunity for upward socioeconomic mobility, which is a fundamental element of escaping poverty, reducing inequality, and promoting a prosperous world for the future generations.
