Backpack to Briefcase: Women and Financial Literacy

Close up of calculator and stacks of coins

Tuesday, September 20, 2016
6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
University of Toronto Mississauga
Deerfield Hall, Room 2060

A study by Statistics Canada reveals that Canadian women trail behind men in financial literacy and have less confidence in their ability to manage their finances. How can women close this gap and what influences the way women earn, manage and invest their money differently from men?

This Backpack to Briefcase brings you face-to-face with a panel of successful and knowledgeable alumnae from the financial sector to share their experience and insight as we explore the relationship between gender and finance.

This event is open to U of T Mississauga students and alumni of all genders.

Registration is closed.
