Women’s Money® Week is a national social media and live events campaign encouraging women to speak up about money, access financial information, take control of their finances, and reshape their financial futures. Focusing on a different general topic each day during Women’s Money® Week, this national campaign encourages hundreds of amazing bloggers, businesses and government agencies to take on the mission of encouraging financial action, the importance of financial education, and awareness of the financial issues effecting women and families.
Here’s Information About the 1st Annual Women’s Money® Week that occurred in March 2012
Women’s Money Week started with a first annual event running from March 5th-11th, 2012 — coinciding with International Women’s Day. We had over 50,000 visitors in one week and over 100 of the best and brightest in women’s personal finance come together to share their knowledge and experience. Each day they tackled a new topic as it uniquely affects women.
#WMW15 took a different direction to talk about one topic. #WMW16 is going back to the original format. Read More About Past Women's Money® Weeks:
