Building Women's Financial Literacy at Older Ages: Insights on Financial Education from the U.S. and Asia
The ability to manage finances and plan for future needs is critical for well-being as we age. However, research shows that many people around the world lack the financial knowledge and skills needed to confidently secure their future. Women are particularly vulnerable to financial insecurity due to lifelong inequities in economic opportunities, legal rights, and social status.
With funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the University of Southern California (USC) Center for Economic and Social Research, the Tsao Foundation, and HelpAge USA conducted research on the implementation of a successful financial literacy program across Asia and the need for financial education for older women in the U.S.
Join us on Thursday, April 27, from 11am–12:30pm ET for a virtual event to take a deep dive into the results, followed by a panel of experts in aging and economic security who will share their thoughts on the findings and future opportunities.
