Did you know?

That, as women, we still earn 17% less than men on average, and a woman's lifespan is 8% longer than an average man's? Also considering that women work an average of six full years less than the average man primarily due to child and elder care. These facts alone prove the value of educating women on financial wellness. We want the women in our community to be prepared financially for life and career transitions. Join us for our next GWEN: Finance through the Ages.

  • Just Getting Started: The early apprentice years of our adult life are where we take control of our destiny. It is a time for acquiring the essential life skills for economic security and acquiring a financial vocabulary, self-knowledge, and responsibility for ourselves. In this session, we will discuss more than goal setting, budgeting, banking, and tracking expenses; we will also dive into cyber-security,  as well as building and protecting your credit and identity.

  • Middle of the Road:  During these years of peak career performance, life responsibility, and personal achievement, we begin making decisions to help us provide for the present and prepare for the future. In this session, we will discuss those decisions around making informed choices about investments, pensions, and property. We will also discuss seeing the implications of marriage and children, as well as assessing risk before making financial commitments and developing your team of professionals.

  • Prime Time-Managing Your Retirement Destination: This is the phase of life we all work to achieve! As we prepare to start withdrawal from paid work, maximizing our resources is critical. In this session, we will explore turning assets into income, as well as turning skills into part-time or freelance work. We will also touch on estate planning, with an understanding of the role of wills, power of attorney, and legacy tools. These are all helpful in safeguarding assets for generational transfer.

  • All 3 sessions
