Boston — Treasurer Deb Goldberg has announced an additional location for the Women’s Economic Empowerment Series. The initiative, launched in collaboration with Citizens Bank, is a free program focusing on wage negotiation, money management, retirement and investment strategies for women. The workshop will be held at New Bedford High School on December 6th.

“Women face unique challenges when it comes to financial security,” said Treasurer Deb Goldberg. “This Program will continue to provide critical information that will give women in New Bedford the skills they need to be successful in today’s economy.”

For more specifics on the event details, programmatic content, and to register please visit the program’s site HERE.

New Bedford was chosen as part of a statewide expansion to bring economic security workshops to women across Massachusetts. The workshop, held in partnership with the Women’s Fund of Southeastern Massachusetts and the YWCA of Southeastern Massachusetts, is designed to help empower women and give them the tools to secure their economic future and reach their full financial potential

On day one, Treasurer Goldberg created the Office of Economic Empowerment (OEE), led by a deputy treasurer, with the deliberate goal of implementing a range of economic empowerment initiatives that include closing the gender wage gap, increasing access to financial education, improving college affordability, and investing in STEM careers and education.
