Session: Women & Money - Take Control of Your Financial Future
Money - the thing we don't want to talk about but has a major impact on our lives. Knowing where to turn to get the right information for you, especially in male-dominated fields like tech, can be overwhelming and intimidating. Through this workshop, we'll do a deep dive on the relationship between women & money, providing you with a roadmap to take charge of your financial future. While women today have never been in a better position to achieve financial security for themselves or their families, women face unique financial challenges - even more so during the COVID-19 "She-cession." This program will not only discuss these challenges but also inspire you to take action on overcoming them.
As part of a multi-generational team of financial advisors, Morgan and her mom, Cindy, are on a mission to equip women with the knowledge they need to make smart money choices at every stage of their personal and professional lives.
