In 2015, women working full time in the U.S. were paid on average 80% of what men were paid.
To discuss women’s unique financial hurdles, both in how we are paid and what we do with money, we’re teaming up with two experts on the subject: Sallie Krawcheck, CEO and Co-Founder of Ellevest, a digital platform redefining investing for women, and Matt Wallaert, behavioral scientist and co-creator of GetRaised.com and SalaryOrEquity.com, tools working to close the wage gap.
In our second Changemaker Experience, we’ll be discussing what it means to ask and earn, spend and save like a girl… a #GirlBoss that is.
