Mar 10, 2022

9:30am – 10:30am CT

Improving girls’ financial education & literacy in HS is critical to improving America’s gender wage and wealth inequalities, the college debt crisis (which disproportionately affects women) & addressing the demand for greater diversity in the financial industry. We must teach girls to be fiscally confident by familiarizing them with financial terms, exposing them to female role models, teaching them about investing (not just budgets) and opening their eyes to how finance can affect their lives.
