Discussions:

Building Wealth, Shattering the Glass Ceiling and the Importance of Male Allyship.

Suzanne Siracuse, Financial Services Industry Consultant, Thought Leader, and Podcast Host, will moderate this timely discussion with our Inspiration Award Honoree Grace Vandecruze, our Sayra Fischer Lebenthal Award Honoree Manisha Thakor, plus have a one on one conversation with Male Ally Award Honoree John L. Carter.

“Within corporate America, women hold only about 27 percent of manager positions and 19 percent of senior leadership roles.”

Panel Discussion:

Are the Golden Years Truly Golden? How to Solve Women’s Financial Challenges

Jean Chatzky, personal finance columnist,  AARP’s personal finance ambassador, and the founder and CEO of HerMoney will moderate this critical discussion with our Change Maker Honorees Jeanne Sun, Jennifer Zuccarelli, and Heather Ettinger.

Women continue to lag behind men and are three times more likely to live in poverty above age 65 than our male counterparts. Why is this? What can we do about it? Why is it important for women to take action to put themselves on the right financial track?
