Building financial literacy has great potential to empower communities. Systemic inequity in our nation is often a catalyst for lack of access to financial literacy and resources that would allow the building of personal and generational wealth, and widening the wealth gap. Join us for this workshop as we learn more about how to empower communities through financial literacy and explore financial tips for your own life and career.
