As a women's leadership development Institute, we believe in the power of women coming together and working together to create change.
Our mission is to empower women to advance personally and professionally at all stages of development with a focus on education, inspiration and connection. With those priorities in mind, we have developed a financial education program to help women achieve their personal financial goals and safeguard their future. Women have unique financial needs relative to their male counterparts. Despite the obstacles presented by gender inequality, experts agree that there are steps women can take to help ensure their financial security. Three specific actions women can focus on are seeking out equal opportunity employment, prioritizing financial education, and building person credit.Studies have identified specific issues that contribute to long-term financial challenges for women:
Mentoring is an often-underestimated professional growth tool, which benefits both the mentor and the mentee by opening up career possibilities. An established mentoring program can add value to the mentor, mentee and organization by maximizing skill development, improving performance and growing potential. UW-Green Bay is now offering a structured mentor training program for area businesses and professionals, along with an additional HR Training: Mentorship Implementation Certificate which will help an organization create or enhance a formal mentorship program. Choose one or both to make sure your Mentorship program is a success.
