Women’s Money Week Voices Financial Concerns Facing Women

Las Vegas, NV,   March 3, 2016–  Women continue to fall behind men in nearly every category related to finances – from investment practices, to savings, to salaries. Women’s Money® Week 2016 (#WMW16) aims to close these gaps by encouraging women and men to raise awareness for important money-related issues impacting women and their families. This fifth annual Women’s Money® Week takes place next week, March 7th – 11th, 2016, and coincides with International Women’s Day.

During Women’s Money® Week, personal finance journalists, broadcasters, and bloggers are joining together to raise awareness about women’s money-related issues as they share resources, information and experiences.  The Week will feature five personal finance topics, one daily, and participants will contribute their knowledge and experiences on that topic as it uniquely relates to women.  The daily topics are:  

 ·         Monday:  Entrepreneurship & Career (Entrepreneurship, Earning Your Worth, Making Money);

·         Tuesday:  Relationships & Money (Marriage, Kids, Goals, Financial Organization);

·         Wednesday:  Budgeting & Spending (Saving Money, Credit, Money Management);

·         Thursday:  Debt & Saving (Debt Freedom, Credit, Savings, Student Loans);

·         Friday:  Investing in Your Future ( Retirement, Investing, Insurance, College Planning, Home Ownership)

Some of the best and brightest in personal finances will be participating including Carrie Rocha of PocketYourDollars.com, Experian, Seattle Money Coach Mikelann Valterra, Arizona YWCA, Women’s Business Development Council, Jill Salzman of FoundingMoms.com, and more.
