Mastercard will host a reception and panel discussion. The event will showcase Mastercard’s commitment to using its products and technologies in non-traditional ways, specifically highlighting prepaid products deployed in partnership with Mercy Corps for refugees and displaced populations across the Mediterranean region.
The Priceless Possibilities Exhibit will be a three-part multi-media experience where you can learn more about how Mastercard technology enhances the lives of people around the world, every day. Hear from Mastercard employees about the work they are engaged in, and how they make an impact it on real people.
The event is open to all students, faculty, and staff at Washington University.
Why is Mastercard engaged in humanitarian work? At Mastercard, we believe that we have an imperative to be a force for good in the world. Part of that is giving people around the world greater access to the formal financial system – and the work we do to help address humanitarian causes is an essential part of this. Everyone who works at Mastercard has a role to play in making this important work happen – from building the systems that process transactions around the world, to developing the technology that keeps cardholders safe and secure, to building products that may be used anywhere, anytime, and for every customer. Our technology and expertise uniquely enable us to partner with humanitarian aid organizations like Mercy Corps to provide digital aid to displaced populations, as well as those impacted by natural disasters, political unrest, food insecurity, and more.
