“A future-ready government is one that will successfully – with clear goals, purpose and a viable plan – meet the needs of its citizens,” he said. John Hope Bryant, Founder, President and CEO of Operation HOPE. “Over the past two years, our shared global challenges have reminded us that preparation is crucial. As we reach new turning points, I hope leaders and governments at all levels will seize the opportunity and fulfill the moment to serve their citizens. , economic shifts, social and political unrest or any other driving force together can ensure hope and a future that works for all. “

Bryant spoke about setting up government working groups for the future and his work in preparing for future financial literacy in the United States. He has been instrumental in the formation of the Presidential Advisory Councils on Financial Literacy, FLEC Creation and now President Biden’s efforts on racial justice and agency priorities.

Bryant has advised several incumbent U.S. presidents and led several global initiatives, resulting in policy changes that have improved government-citizen relations. He was a member of the Presidential Advisory Council on Financial Literacy under President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama. As a champion of financial well-being and economic justice, he also advised President Bill Clinton. On Bryant’s recommendation, U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew renamed the former U.S. Treasury Annex building the Freedman’s Bank Building, founded by President Abraham Lincoln in 1865 to help develop newly liberated African Americans as they sought to become financially stable.

Over the past three decades, Bryant has also successfully created public-private partnerships to change the results of financial well-being in underserved communities through education and practical programming.
