Craft Workshop | Financial Literacy Fundamentals: Your Money Story

Wednesday, Mar. 23
5-7PM ET

online event; open to all mentees, mentors and alumni

Money is empowering—but oftentimes women shy away from it. With money, we have the agency to do good and live out our dreams. We celebrate Women’s History Month by writing—or rewriting—our own “money story” while getting equipped with the skills to manage it.

Financial literacy is the ability to understand and use financial skills. A money story is a personal narrative about your beliefs and feelings about money that began forming in early childhood. This workshop will explore various financial skills, including budgeting and investing, so that you are equipped to write your money story on your own terms.
