Women's Economic Empowerment Series (Worcester)
Overview of Women's Economic Empowerment Series (Worcester)
The Women’s Economic Empowerment Series is a financial empowerment workshop to help women gain the tools to secure their economic future and reach their full financial potential. Join us for this FREE series and participate in high-quality financial education workshops and unique salary negotiation training. This is a project of Massachusetts State Treasurer’s Office, in conjunction the Worcester YWCA and Oak Hill Community Development Corporation. This event is sponsored by Citizens Bank.
This program is for women of all ages, ethnicities, economic backgrounds, and levels of fiscal knowledge. Participants who attend these workshops will learn:
- Budgeting Basics
- Managing Debt
- Improving Credit Score
- Home Buying
Each night, participants can choose between two tracks: salary negotiation or financial education. While the salary negotiation workshop remains the same both nights, the financial education curriculum changes to cover four separate topics. The first session offers workshops on budgeting and banking while the second session offers workshops on retirement and estate planning.
This program is aimed at targeting issues around women’s economic disparities, including the gender wage gap. Visit www.EqualPayMA.com to learn more about wage equality.
Check-in will begin 10 minutes before the workshop.
