Women, and specifically women of color, statistically invest less than men, and they’re also less likely to talk about their finances. Finance Festival brings together leading voices across the broadening landscape of wealth creation to break down taboos around personal topics like money and finance, as well as highlight ways to get involved as an investor—at any stage and in myriad ways. 

Join us from April 14-28 for 8 sessions and 20+ speakers, covering investing in the stock market, cryptocurrency, real estate, and private companies, as well as deep dives into blockchain’s role in the future of money. Tickets are free and open to the public.
