Natural Awakenings Tucson

Learn to Become Financially Empowered

May 30, 2016 04:32PM

Women will learn how to become financially empowered, at a workshop held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., June 17, at YWCA Tucson. Financial empowerment isn’t about learning how to save a few bucks here or there, but rather about taking control of our own future. While we continue to fight for equal wages, it is important for women to become financially empowered.

“How much are you worth? As a unique individual, you are invaluable. But do you know your actual financial worth? What about your cash flow? Do you know if you’re gaining or losing ground? Do you have a realistic plan for retirement?” inquires Michelle Pitot, Chief of Staff at YWCA of Southern Arizona. “If you’re a woman and I ask you how much you weigh, you’ll probably be able to answer accurately, within a pound or two. But your net worth? Not usually.”

In today’s world, women work just as much as men, but the gender wage gap has held steady at about 23 cents for the last 20 years. This gap grows the older we get, which is especially important since women tend to live longer than men.
