Closing the Gender
Wealth Gap Series

In October 2020, we launched the Closing the Gender Wealth Gap Virtual Education Series whose purpose is 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 features the most recognized experts and thought leaders on women’s issues in the Greater Philadelphia region and beyond. Each facilitated discussion includes three topic experts – one addresses the topic from a policy perspective, one addresses the topic from a practitioner perspective, and one addresses the topic from a lived experience perspective.
