Show Your Money Who’s Boss:
Debt & Divorce Edition Next Event
Wednesday, November 24, 2021
7:00 PM – 8:15 PM
Join us for an amazing evening of financial facts, tips, and tools shared by women financial experts and industry leaders that will inspire you to “show your money who’s boss!”.
This virtual event is focused on the topic of Debt and Divorce AND features four financial and legal experts who will provide specific advice and insight during one of four interactive sessions.
In partnership with the City of Edmonton, Women and Money events bring women from all walks of life together to participate in sessions tailored to each guests’ financial interests. In past events, attendees get to learn from a panel of speakers and have the unique opportunity to “ask an expert” at individual round table discussions.
Our November 24th event reimagines this format virtually. The virtual event builds on Women and Money’s “show your money who’s boss” event series, a popular series which takes a hands-on approach to empowering all women in financial matters.
Attendees will have the option to choose to attend two of the four breakout sessions, featuring speakers with a wide range of expertise. We are excited to share our lineup of speakers.
