Women and Wealth: Financial Workshops for Women for Color

As women of color make economic strides as the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs, we also collectively owe over $800 billion student loan debt and are crippled by the pay wage gap.

It’s important now more than ever that we learn the life skills and confidence needed to manage our money, reduce debt and build wealth.

We're partnering with Eastern Bank to host two financial workshops specifically designed to help women of color to conquer their unique economic challenges and gain control of their finances.
