There are times students come to us with questions that can’t be solved with a budget, or a book, or an app. Sometimes students are forced to take action to avoid financial ruin or to improve their financial standing. And that is why perhaps the best lesson we can teach them is to be their own financial self-advocate.


Inceptia welcomes James McCarthy, former FDIC and CFPB member, for this informative one hour webinar on the top financial issues of which students must be wary and for which they must develop their own advocacy skills. From credit card fraud to ID theft to student loan complaints and more, we’ll provide practical talking points to help foster productive conversations with your students and resources to help them take action. Attendees of this webinar will:

  • Gain a solid foundation in advising students on financial advocacy topics like negotiating debt, fighting ID theft, navigating a credit hack, and more
  • Benefit from insider expertise regarding the best tools and processes to resolve financial disputes
  • Receive access to a financial advocacy resource guide that can be used and shared with students
