About nine in ten women will have to go it alone, financially, at some point in their lives. This free lunch-and-learn will explain what women need to know about their money to be ready.

Friday, March 29, from 11:30am to 12:15pm 
Includes boxed lunch, refreshments
RSVP: or call (404) 760-9000


While both men and women need to have their eyes wide open when it comes to their money, it’s likely the woman will eventually be living on her own. According to a recent Gender Gap in Financial Literacy study, “the reality is that 90% of women will be solely responsible for their finances at some point in their lives due to the death of a spouse or divorce.”

Women need to have a basic understanding of how much they have, how it is allocated — property, stocks, bonds and other assets – and whether they will have enough to live a comfortable retirement. 

Lisa Brown of Brightworth and Melody Richardson of Richardson, Bloom & Lines will share insights and strategies to learn more about your finances and be prepared to assume responsibility. Bring your questions, and be ready to learn, share, and network.

We’re looking forward to seeing you there.
