FPA Connect: The Women's Wealth Gap

What It Is, Why It Matters, and What Can Be Done About It
August 17, 2017 @ 12 - 1 PM ET
 1 CEU for AFCPE® and CFP® Professionals
Open to AFCPE & FPA Members
 
Our robust national discussion about gender inequality typically focuses on wage disparities, yet recent research shows that the women’s wealth gap is far greater than the income gap. Women earn 79 cents on the dollar compared to men, yet they own only 32 cents on the dollar.  For women of color, the gap is a chasm: Black and Latina women own only pennies on the dollar, compared to both white men and white women.  
 
Join this webinar to learn more about the drivers of the women’s wealth gap; how it affects the financial security – and financial choices – of families, and emerging policy and practical solutions that build wealth for low-income women and women of color.
 
Moderator:
Heather McCulloch is the founder and director of the Closing the Women’s Wealth Gap Initiative, a national network of 175 leaders from across the nonprofit, philanthropic and public sectors who are working to advance policies and strategies that build wealth for low-income women and women of color (www.womenswealthgap.org). Ms. McCulloch is also founder and principal of Asset Building Strategies, a consulting firm that advances policies and strategies to build the financial security of low-wealth individuals and families (www.assetbuildingstrategies.com).
