OneUnited Bank And Joblogues Bring Real Money Talk To Young Professionals

Joblogues Podcast Provides Opportunity to Promote Financial Literacy

September 13, 2017 – Boston, MA – OneUnited Bank, the largest Black owned bank and first Black internet bank in the country, and Joblogues, a podcast and growing community that fosters candid career conversations with multicultural professionals, are proud to announce an innovative platform to bring real money talk to young professionals.

OneUnited Bank has partnered with Joblogues to promote financial literacy through the growing use of podcasts, a series of audio episodes that users can easily download and listen to on their cell phone, tablet or computer, at their convenience.

Joblogues publishes podcasts on the first and 15th of each month and covers a diverse range of topics about careers, life, and money in a lively, conversational style. Previous episodes have dived into the dos and don’ts of asking for a raise, the 411 of salary negotiation, research around tech salaries, and challenges millennials and minorities face in building wealth and planning for retirement.

“We are thrilled to partner with Joblogues to share financial information with millennials”, states OneUnited Bank President & COO, Teri Williams. “Co-hosts Joymarie Parker and Cortney Cleveland are having real conversations about money that our community loves!”

“With Joblogues, we endeavor to equip our passionate community with the tools and resources they need to build themselves and their communities; financial literacy is essential in this mission,” said Joymarie Parker, Founder and Co-Host of Joblogues. “Our partnership with OneUnited Bank will create a vault of knowledge with the potential to positively impact communities for generations to come.”

OneUnited Bank celebrates the one year anniversary of the #BankBlack Movement, by encouraging the Black community and its allies to not only move their money to Black owned banks or #BankBlack, but also move their minds to do more business with Black owned businesses or #BuyBlack.
