We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

Financial acumen—the comfort and dexterity with the role that money plays in our personal and professional lives—is a key leadership skill. Yet most of us receive little formal education to develop this essential strength.

Through lively, interactive discussions and group exercises, we learn concepts to increase our personal and professional financial literacy. Core components of financial management are contextualized in the global economy as we develop a more solid foundation in understanding personal finance and organizational finance. 

We learn about healthy spending; saving and budgeting; credit scores; insurance; student loans; credit cards; and consumer debt. We discover fundamental options and how to choose between them; retirement planning strategies; and what financial information to regularly monitor.

We also find out how to discuss money with romantic partners, adult children, elderly parents, and financial professionals.

This workshop is for women interested in strengthening their leadership at home, at work, and in the world by creating a more empowered financial life.

Scholarships available.
