Women’s Economic Empowerment series 9/29

Massachusetts State Treasurer’s Office of Economic Empowerment (OEE) will facilitate the Women’s Economic Empowerment series in two pilot cities this fall. This new initiative, in collaboration with Citizens Bank, is a free 4-session program focusing on wage negotiation, money management, retirement and investment strategies for women of all ages, ethnicities, economic backgrounds and levels of fiscal knowledge.
In Massachusetts, women are paid 82 cents on the dollar compared to their male counterparts. This ratio is even worse for African American women who earn 61 cents, and Latina women who earn 50 cents. Learn more at www.EqualPayMA.com. Although the Massachusetts State Treasurer's Office has offered financial literacy conferences for over a decade, this pilot program is the first to specifically focus on empowering women to reach their full financial potential by enabling them to become more financially informed, delivering high-quality educational workshops and inspiring participants to pursue long term economic stability through unique salary negotiation training.
