  • Wealth Building and Financial Wellness Workshop

    5:00pm - 6:30pm
    Location: YWCA Ballroom

    Many of us know that women, especially women of color, on average earn less than men, but the gap widens exponentially when we assess wealth disparities. According to the WFCO Wealth Gap Report, the Gender & Racial Wealth Gap refers to how structural racism and sexism compounds and contributes towards the wealth gap, which in turn further exacerbates political, economic, and social disadvantages on the basis of gender and race. Building wealth not only helps to ensure women's economic security and that of future generations, but also can help to shape and sustain social change movements when women engage in philanthropy.

    Join Wealth Management Advisors and Business Managers from Merril Lynch as they share the basics of how to move beyond basic budgeting and focus on more holistic financial health, long term planning, and wealth building. Through this financial literacy workshop, the facilitators will provide access to resources and information about building wealth and provide practical take-aways participants can begin incorporating into their lives.
