BBVA Compass, Opportunity Finance Network Welcome

First Class of Opportunity Fellows to Birmingham

  • 25 professionals from diverse finance organizations participate in leadership program
  • Fellows to explore ways to give underserved communities better access to capital

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. -  BBVA Compass and Opportunity Finance Network on Tuesday welcome their inaugural class of 25 Opportunity Fellows to Birmingham for a three-day training session where they'll explore how to lead the change necessary to give underserved communities equal access to capital. The Latino Economic Development Center's Oswaldo Acosta is one of the professionals selected for the program

 

"We are thrilled that Oswaldo was selected to participate in the 2017 Opportunity Fellows Program. It is a great opportunity for him and for LEDC to learn from the thoughtful curriculum and top-notch peers who will be joining him on the journey," said Marla Bilonick, Executive Director, Latino Economic Development Center. "As a graduate of OFN's prior leadership program, I can personally attest to the value and quality that OFN brings to bear in uniting ideas and people for the benefit of the industry."  

 

BBVA Compass and Opportunity Finance Network joined forces in October to develop the Opportunity Fellows Program. The program is designed to boost the leadership ranks and spur the transformation of Community Development Financial Institutions, or CDFIs, which are critical engines of opportunity in low-income communities. Nationally recognized experts in the field of community development chose the 25 Opportunity Fellows from nearly 100 highly qualified applicants, and together they represent emerging, mid-career and executive-level professionals from CDFIs across the country. Owaldo Acosta was selected to participate in the MID-CAREER level.

 

"This innovative and robust leadership program brings together participants with different levels of experience with a common goal: to increase opportunity for all people and in all communities across the country," said Pam Porter, Executive Vice President, Strategic Consulting at OFN. "We congratulate the 25 Opportunity Fellows, and we thank BBVA Compass for recognizing the impact this program will have and for its generous support."

 

The Opportunity Fellows Program provides nine months of training with world-class experts in leadership and racial equity from the University of Alabama Collat School of Business and Race Matters Institute. The program kicks off this week at the BBVA Compass headquarters in Birmingham, where participants will engage in interactive activities and experiences, and will learn from other leaders in microfinance. They will also spend time with experts to better understand the patterns and causes behind the growing inequity in racial and ethnic minorities, as well as tour the Innovation Depot business incubator.

 

"We could not be more proud of this leadership program, and of these participants," said BBVA Compass Director of Corporate Responsibility and Reputation Reymundo Ocañas. "We know that by investing in their future, we're investing in the future of all of our communities. These are the leaders of organizations who put capital to work directly in low- to moderate-income communities. The idea is to arm them with the tools and skills they need to flourish in this impactful field of community-oriented finance."
