Empowering Women for the Future

Women in Finance Celebrate International Women's Day
by Helping Girls Find Paths to Success

Wednesday, March 8, 2017 from 11:30 AM to 3:30 PM
at the Metropolitan Club, 640 Sutter Street, San Francisco

The Bay Area Financial Education Foundation is proud to present the second annual “Empowering Women For The Future” – a volunteer event celebrating International Women’s Day, where local women in finance will spend an afternoon mentoring Bay Area middle and high school girls participating in the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship’s enrichment programs. The event is generously sponsored by Wells Fargo, Jackson Square Partners, National Association of Securities Professionals and Financial Women of San Francisco. Volunteers from our allied organizations including 100 Women in Finance, CFA Society San Francisco’s Women’s Initiative Network and the Financial Planning Association will also participate in the event.

During this structured program, women who participate will be serving as coaches to the young women, helping to develop the students’ personal mission and offering advice on how to improve their business plans and presentation skills.

Volunteers will be paired 1 on 1 with NFTE students, assisting them with developing their ideas fully, focusing on the areas they have difficulty understanding or articulating, and helping them to prepare them for presenting their ideas before an audience and a panel of judges. NFTE program directors will lead the session and provide support throughout the afternoon.

The event includes a luncheon and inspiring address from Van Tran, CFO of Jackson Square Partners.
