This Saturday marks the 10th anniversary of the Berkeley/Oakland YWCA Young Women and Money Conference held at the Oakland Convention Center. I am honored to be invited back as a panelist to discuss with attendees the importance of financial planning in crafting a successful life and how to create a roadmap for a secure financial future. At a time when the financial literacy of our country's citizens and especially its women cannot be over-valued, I take great joy in participating in this important event. Both Fidelity Investments and the CFP® Board generously donated materials to all 150 anticipated attendees that will help them work on their own plans after this motivational conference. Kudos to them and particularly to the hard-working, dedicated team at our local Berkeley/Oakland YWCA whose important work and commitment to helping women thrive financially is inspiring.
