It’s estimated that the wage gap won’t be closed until 2186. We believe we can change that. The first step? By speaking up. Please join us for a candid conversation about money: how to get more of it, how we can be more comfortable talking about it, and ways to support one another in our fight for wage equality. Come ready to share your stories.
Join us as we learn how to get where we want to be when it comes to personal finances.
