Highlights from our Mother to Daughter Financial Summit: Empowering Girls to be Money-Wise
Moms, teens and tweens joined Miss Teen USA Logan West, and money experts to kick-off our Mother 2 Daughter Financial Summit. The Summit was a perfect setting for girls to bond with their moms while learning the language of money in a fun-filled environment.
The White House Council on Women and Girls reports women are particularly vulnerable to financial insecurity. There is a key relationship between financial freedom and quality of life. Having a commanding knowledge of basic money concepts is crucial in an increasingly complex global market system.
Our Mother 2 Daughter Summit topics focused girls on making thoughtful and responsible decisions about spending, saving, and borrowing. Girls learned how to deal with media influences and peer pressure on their spending habits, while their moms received an overview of a shifting global market system and the impact it will have on their daughters. Mom's session wrapped-up with lessons on avoiding financial pitfalls that threaten a woman's financial security.
