Women's Economic Empowerment Series Springfield

Boston — Treasurer Goldberg has announced additional locations for the second round of 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 workshops will be held at Bay Path University in Springfield on November 8th and 15th and are co-sponsored by Bay Path’s Strategic Alliances and M.S. in Nonprofit Management & Philanthropy programs.

“Women face unique challenges when it comes to financial security,” said Treasurer Deb Goldberg. “This Program will provide critical information that will give the women in Springfield 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.

As a gateway city, Springfield was chosen as part of a statewide expansion to bring economic security workshops to women across Massachusetts. The workshops, held in partnership with Bay Path University, are designed to empower women and students and give them 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.
