Leadership requires thoughtful choices in a variety of areas—including money. Yet financial acumen is a skill set for which most women have received little, if any, formal education.

During this inspiring, uplifting course for women, we dramatically increase our fluency and comfort with the role that money plays in our personal lives and in the world.

Using a holistic, spirit-centered approach we learn the basics of:

  • Personal finance—the key elements of healthy spending, saving and budgeting, and debt management
  • Investing—demystifying this vital activity with clear guidance on the how, what, and where of investing
  • Money and relationships—financial topics to discuss with romantic partners, adult children, elderly parents, and financial professionals

Importantly, we explore these topics against the current, exciting macroeconomic backdrop where we are seeing dramatic, increasing contributions of women to the global economy. With a lively combination of lectures, videos, music, solo writing exercises, and group sharing, this positive, one-of-a-kind personal finance workshop teaches us how to create the financial life we want. Students leave with a renewed sense of calm and confidence about the role of money in their lives.
