From the time they are born, studies show that women are behind the curve when it comes to money: we talk finances with boys more than with girls, parents save less for their daughters’ college education than their sons’, and straight out of college, men earn over $6,000 more per year than their female counterparts, on average. The end result is a gender divide that equates to women working longer hours, for more years, with less wealth and retirement security.
In honor of Equal Pay Day, join Inceptia to learn more about what the financial education community can do to address the unique financial struggles that women face. Guest speakers will include Sophia Bera, owner of Gen Y Planning and CNBC contributor, and Jennifer Hemphill, an Accredited Financial Counselor and host of the Her Money Matters podcast. They’ll share their insights into the female financial literacy gap, challenges facing minority women, and suggestions for empowering female students to take control of their finances.
