Women’s Way – The Gender and Wealth Institute (GWI) Virtual Education Series
In fall of 2017, WOMEN’S WAY launched the Women’s Economic Security Initiative (WESI), a long-term, systems-level collaborative initiative centered around the shared vision that all women in the Greater Philadelphia region attain financial well-being for themselves and their families. In January 2021, WESI will be transitioning to The Gender and Wealth Institute (GWI) whose purpose is to close the gender wealth gap in the Greater Philadelphia region by advancing research and practical solutions that build wealth for women who are economically insecure.
As part of our year-long launch, GWI will be conducting a series of education forums to educate different stakeholders on both the key drivers of the gender wealth gap and accelerators that help close the gender wealth gap in our region. Each session will include a facilitated discussion among three topic experts – one will address the topic from a policy perspective, one with address the topic from a practitioner perspective, and one will address the topic from a lived experience perspective. Each session will include a call to action specific to the topic issue.
