WSJ Women in the Workplace: Money Matters

More than a year into the pandemic, women continue to juggle home and career responsibilities, which has only put more focus on emergency funds and financial planning. Join WSJ editors for a solutions-focused conversation on building your financial independence, whether it’s how to supercharge a rainy-day fund, adjust living expenses or reallocate assets to withstand the markets—and life’s next curveball.

Covid-19 has made many women look at their finances through a new lens, whether it’s what to do with funds socked away by staying at home, re-thinking the household budget or better preparing for future economic challenges.  For this discussion, we’ve confirmed the following speakers:

  • Jennifer Barrett | Chief Education Officer, Acorns; Author “Think Like a Breadwinner”
  • Sarah LaFleur | Founder and CEO, M.M.LaFleur
  • Claire Wasserman | Founder and Author, Ladies Get Paid
