Educating and empowering low-income women

The goal for the 2018 Women’s Economic Empowerment Summit is to gather nonprofit and philanthropic leaders to share information and resources beneficial to achieving security for low income women and their families. Experts will discuss the challenges as well as the programs, strategies and solutions that are building financial well-being in local communities. Topics highlighted will include participant centered coaching and other best practices that have proven successful in helping women achieve economic security.

This will be a day dedicated to learning and sharing ideas on how we can increase the financial security of low-income women and their families.

We are excited to announce two of our featured speakers will be California State Controller
Betty T. Yee
