Let's Talk About Funds

Why are money matters taboo for many women? Tremendous progress has been made globally towards female financial empowerment with record numbers of women joining workforces and managing their personal finances. Yet, research continues to show that women earn less than men and that men are four times more likely than women to ask for a raise. What role does gender inequality play in money and finance? How can we demystify money and empower women through financial literacy?
