Money Smart Week | 4.23-4.30. 2016
YWCA Metropolitan Chicago and DyMynd are partnering during MONEY SMART WEEK 2016, April 23-30, to bring the Chicago area a series of dynamic events that will focus on four ways that we can impact wage equality and help women obtain financial empowerment: EARN, INVEST, SPEND and GIVE.
Combining a stellar lineup of speakers, networking opportunities, and hosts and sponsors who are dedicated to promoting women’s financial empowerment, our events are designed to inspire action and create change.
Money Smart Week was initiated by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago in 2002 to bring awareness to financial literacy. Today in 2016, YWCA Metropolitan Chicago and DyMynd realized the need to take Money Smart Week to the next level by injecting the topic of wage equality into the conversation.
