Panel Discussion: Women and Money


The COVID-19 pandemic disproportionately impacted women―particularly women of color. Women suffered a higher number of job losses, spent more time on childcare, and many dropped out of the workforce altogether. The events of 2020 highlighted the importance of well-being and specifically financial wellness in this mix.

With many women realizing that they need to get their finances in order and build a safety net to feel secure, more and more forward-thinking organizations are taking a proactive role in supporting financial wellness initiatives.

But how?

During this panel discussion you will hear from a diverse group of women about their relationship with money―the role finances play in their personal and business lives, how they’ve overcome the odds to achieve financial security, and tips for building wealth despite the gender wage gap.
