Workshop's goal to empower women financially

Emory Report | Jan. 18, 2013

"She's Got It: A Women's Guide to Saving and Investing" is Thursday, Jan. 24 at 11:30 a.m. in the Winship Ballroom of the Dobbs University Center.  

The workshop is being co-hosted by TIAA-CREF, one of Emory's retirement services vendors; Emory WorkLife Resource Center, and Emory's Center for Women. 

TIAA-Cref will be presenting the information and providing lunch for the women-only event. This workshop is for all women in all stages of their careers.

 Workshop leaders will show participants:  

  • Core concepts that guide all investing, get motivated, build a plan and take action.
  • Ways to take on life challenges without damaging future financial well-being.
  • How to break down what individual real goals and how to reach them via group activities.

Participants will also discover more about themselves taking the Financial Personality Type Quiz.

Financial experts have found that only about 30 percent of women feel confident making investment decisions on their own. This is especially noteworthy as women, on average, live longer than men, making it crucial to plan for extra years of retirement.

This workshop is one of two that will be offered by TIAA-CREF. A second one will be targeted towards women in the late career stage, looking to retire within the next three to five years.
