Event description

Description

What's all this about?

There needs to be a shift in how we’re designing finance.

It affects all our lives — shaping our lifestyle, opportunities, and even our mental & physical wellbeing.

However, it’s inherently complex, often difficult to understand, and our system can at times exclude or exploit those who are most vulnerable.

Coupled with the fact that Australia’s population has varying financial literacy and mathematical ability, and isn’t set up to deal with complex, abstract finance systems; we’ve created a situation which is detrimental for almost everyone involved.

So, how might we create products, services, and policies that improve Australia’s financial inclusivity, literacy, and wellbeing?

How can we pivot the design of our financial services to drive human value for people, as well as business value for financial institutions?

We’ll be joined by the industry experts below for a lively debate on the role that finance needs to play in creating a wellbeing economy.

Yasin Masukor - Design Lead, Mentally Friendly

Lisa Summers - Director of Financial Capability Partnerships, ASIC

Megan Weier - Research Fellow, Centre for Social Impact

Lali Wiratunga - National Manager, Westpac's Davidson Institute

Who are we?

We are Mentally Friendly, a digital product & service studio in Sydney and Canberra with a mission to deliver wellbeing through financial services, government, healthcare, education and energy – the sectors that most affect our lives.

Very Important

Yes, there will be a bar and we'll provide free food - but we hope that’s not the only reason you’d like to be there :)

We acknowledge the traditional owners - the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation - upon whose ancestral lands this event takes place, and we pay our respects to Elders past, present, and emerging.
