Working Women

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

6:30 pm at Broadmoor Arts & Wellness Center (3900 General Taylor)

As the third event in JLNO’s Financial Literacy for Women program, this session will present information on the following topics:

  • Understanding and using employer-provided benefits
  • Handling your paycheck
  • Reducing or avoiding debt

This workshop is meant to assist the newly-employed woman by giving her the basics for how to make sound financial decisions. By understanding core concepts, each woman can move out of the cycle of poverty and become a woman who is going places — financially, in the workplace, and in her family life.

This workshop is designed to help educate and inform these strong women on the most vital tools for financial stability.

This event is free and open to the public, and registration via this link is requested.

Financial Literacy is a powerful tool to achieving and maintaining economic freedom, and it is often not taught in a traditional educational setting. Those without access to this knowledge are susceptible to debt and poverty. With information about developing a household budget, creating an emergency savings account, and purchasing a first home, financial literacy can be the tool that transforms women’s lives.

To increase financial literacy and in alignment with our focus on Advancing the Wellbeing of Women, JLNO has developed a Financial Literacy for Women curriculum which focuses on the five key financial topics of banking, borrowing, budgeting, saving, and investing. All events in this program are free and open to the public.
