HOPE Global Summit Highlights Emerging Markets and Empowering the Underserved as Gateways for a “Global Reset”

Financial Dignity summit to set the tone for way forward for economic recovery

Atlanta -- November 13, 2012 -- The HOPE Global Financial Literacy Summit, Operation HOPE’s signature 20th Anniversary celebration, pulls a spectrum of views leading off with U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke followed by Hip Hop Mogul Russell Simmons in an afternoon session to bring community, government and private sector leaders together for an solution-driven future of free enterprise and capitalism.

The summit is still offering seats for a few select events, as seating is limited. The conference, historical in nature, will feature main stage general plenary and working group sessions at the Georgia International Convention Center, focused on making free enterprise work for all.

The November 14th event will feature the opening of the new HOPE Financial Dignity Center - Ebenezer, at the King Center, the new anchor tenant for the new Martin Luther King, Sr. Community Resource Complex built in honor of Daddy King.

Operations HOPE's working session meetings will culminate at the HOPE Global Financial Dignity Summit in November.  The most active and engaged local delegates will participate in the Summit deliberations. The final report from the summit will be delivered to the President of the United States and G20 leaders by January 15th, 2013.

Other confirmed principal speakers include Steve Bartlett, CEO of the Financial Services Roundtable, Bill Rogers, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of SunTrust Banks, Inc., Michael Arougheti, CEO of Ares Capital Management (with $54 billion in assets under management), Don Graves, Executive Director of the U.S. President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness at the White House, Jim Clifton, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Gallup, amongst others.  Speakers at the Global Dignity Forum include HRH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, Professor Pekka Himanen of Finland, civil rights legend CT Vivian, Dr. Bernice King, CEO of the King Center, and more.

The HOPE Global Summit, under the theme of Community, Character and (Responsible) Capitalism and with an expected audience of more than 1,000 delegates from 26 countries, will be held at the new HOPE Financial Dignity Center at Ebenezer at the King Center and at the Georgia International Convention Center.

Looking forward from civil rights to silver rights, this summit is designed to help America and the world to begin the process of effectively 'turning the page' toward viable long-term, systemic and sustainable solutions to our economic challenges. Visit the HOPE Summit online for more information.
