I now work for a financial institution and was flabbergasted to learn that as recent as 8 years ago, our company had very few female advisors. In fact, at that time, our district which is comprised of four offices across the Southern California area only had 3 female advisors . This has now changed immensely, but this wasn’t THAT long ago. The reality is that the finance world has been typically been dominated by men. Things are changing, but this is partly because traditionally money has been a male construct in our society. Still to this day, 65% of the women I meet with are the breadwinners for their families and the decision makers at work, yet still don’t handle the money. I truly believe that when we talk about Me Too, feeling subjugated and wage gaps, we need to also galvanize women to take control of their money. Money is power. I truly believe that I can help move the needle with female empowerment by helping women to be more financially aware and, within that, helping to change the paradigm as a whole.
