Lisa Mensah "is the Executive Director of the Aspen Institute's Initiative on Financial Security, which is dedicated to building support for the idea of a new generation of individual development accounts available universally but structured to help low- and moderate-income families build assets from birth through retirement. Before launching the Initiative, Ms. Mensah was the deputy director of the Economic Development Unit at the Ford Foundation. In her 13 years at the Ford Foundation, she was responsible for grants to community development financial institutions and for work on savings and wealth building for low-income populations. Prior to joining the Ford Foundation, Ms. Mensah worked in corporate finance for Citibank in New York."
