Unlike the 2008 financial crisis, which led to greater job losses for men in the U.S., the current downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic is disproportionately hurting women’s employment — with possible long-lasting financial ramifications. Major economic disruptions like the one we’re living through now could impact our money for decades.
Even before the current crisis, women faced greater financial challenges: women typically live longer and earn less than men for the same work. As a result, studies show that women will retire with only two-thirds of the savings that men have. In addition, women are less likely to be taught how to manage money growing up and more likely to rely on someone else to take care of the family finances. In this class, we'll help you face your money fears and take control of your purse strings.
You'll walk away with the confidence to set financial goals and learn how to start working on them.
