What Do You Want?

In my financial education work, I talk to a lot of different people.

I talk to parents who are concerned about their kids’ financial know-how, and financial future. I speak with financial professionals who believe that financial literacy is critical to their clients’ success, through all the family’s generations. I talk to adult women who love the idea of financial education for young women and girls because they wished they’d had more when they were younger. I speak to educators who see the importance of financial learning in their schools, and are trying to figure out how to get it there. And I talk to advocates, who work tirelessly to find new and better ways to educate people financially.

I have worked in financial education and other financial fields for a number of years, and including my teaching, curriculum development, research, and conversations with all the folks above, I feel like I have a pretty good idea of what we need to teach girls and young women to become financially literate.

But I would love to hear from you who are part of this community of readers. Please take a minute if you can, and click on the link below to let me and our community know what you want for financial education for girls and young women. I would love to hear anything from financial topics you feel are critical to adult life, to whether you think we should have financial education classes in school, to what kind of program you think would be most effective.

    In addition to the standard topics like creating a budget and how different financial instruments work… how about
    – what are the key financial landmarks where decisions can make or break your longterm solvency?
    – successful negotiation – so key but so hard for women to speak up – effects your salary as well as major purchases (house, car)
