According to Guardian’s Workforce 2020 report, 64% of women say money is the leading cause of stress in their lives, and only a third of women rate their financial health highly compared to 41% of men. Yet the same report found women are more likely than men to own financial wellness products like disability and life insurance and contribute to a retirement plan. Our speakers will discuss common misconceptions women have around financial and retirement planning and explore the cultural and gender-based differences driving men’s and women’s financial behavior.
