Inspiring Financial Independence in Girls

post-image

UN Women notes 65% of men (globally) report having an account at a formal financial institution, only 58% of women do. In part, a lack of financial literacy can also contribute to women being less likely to start their own businesses or to hold senior leadership positions in organisations. On a much darker note, a lack of financial independence can mean a lack of options, trapping women in desperate situations. This podcast aims to inspire parents, women, and of course, girls themselves to think early about the importance of financial independence and basic financial literacy.

My mum inspired my interest in finance by buying me some shares when I was in my teens. I made money in the stock market then lost it and made it again. The experience taught me a lot about finance. We did the same for our children to help them understand the importance of investing versus spending money.

Yes, interest and capability can be enthusiastically nurtured at a very young age, very simply...well done to you mum for her early lessons!
