NCB Management Services and Bridgeforce are Community Impact Partners, supporting female talent and helping to build financial
security for low-income families
POTOMAC, MD, UNITED STATES, September 13, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- As an event focused on getting more
women to the decision-making tables where products are designed and policy is set, Women in Consumer
Finance is committed to helping important causes not only within our community but across our wider
society. The WCF Community Impact Program supports organizations that provide life-changing opportunities
to women and girls of color.
We are grateful to have support this year from NCB Management Services, Inc. and Bridgeforce, which
allows us to make substantial donations to these organizations:
LIFT employs a unique coaching model to help parents break the cycle of poverty for their families.
Through their own hard work – and with LIFT's support – parents create greater financial stability and
career opportunities and set their families up for success. They have obtained college degrees, purchased
homes, paid off credit card debt, built child savings accounts, and started businesses — all proven
factors of a better future for their children. 99% of LIFT members are people of color; 93% are women.
LIFT was recently featured in Forbes.
For the Good targets areas in Kenya where school enrollment is low, especially among girls. Despite
considerable progress globally in primary school enrollment over the past twenty years, there continues
to be low transition to secondary school. All of the data points to the critical role education plays
in increasing incomes and improving health for women and their families. More importantly, it brings
agency and power to half of the world. FTG works directly with communities and parents to address
the myriad barriers to keeping girls in school.
“We are incredibly proud to sponsor an event that has literally revolutionized “the voice” of women
in consumer finance. As an organization, we are committed to the support and investment in our female
work force to ensure that they always have a place at the table. There is no doubt that we are a better
organization for doing so,” said Ralph Liberio, President & CEO of NCB Management Services, Inc.,
which is supporting this program for the second year in a row.
“Through our work in the industry, we recognize that poverty is often inherited and women, especially
those of color, sometimes encounter obstacles in the business world. These strong women are eager to work
hard and make a better life for their families – they just need some support and guidance,” said Michelle
Macartney, Managing Partner of Bridgeforce. “As part of our commitment to promoting women in business
and serving as a good industry steward, we are proud to sponsor Women in Consumer Finance and serve as a
Lead Community Impact partner to provide that support.”

provider, or regulator, this event is for you. We provide inspiration, a guiding hand, and a support
system women can leverage to recharge their careers and deliver value to their employers. WCF is not
about compliance, best practices, or even finance. It's about women, our common professional challenges,
and how to tell our own career story – no matter where we are on our professional journey. We take a
unique approach to building confidence, connection, and careers. There is nothing else like it. WCF
