What is the issue?

59% of working women do not make their own financial decisions

Research has revealed that 59% of working women do not make their financial decisions. Participation of women in financial decisions, whether at work or home is crucial.

It's time to break stereotypes!

Finance is not just for men!

Research also shows that many women feel intimidated by financial decisions probably as a result of social conditioning. This has implications on the career progress of women into senior roles or entrepreneurship. Finance is for you too

What change will learning finance bring?

Building Financial Acumen is a crucial enabler to both professional and personal growth

We are constantly dealing with financial concepts: revenues, costs, investments, budgets, returns, etc. Most professionals have not formally learnt about financial terms and analysis (or if they have, years of non-application has negated the learning). We need to be aware of financial concepts, in a manner that is meaningful to our work. Our objective is not make you accountants or finance professionals, but build awareness of finance for take better decisions
