I had an immediate girl crush on Amanda when I saw her speak at the Emerging Women conference in 2015. She is super smart. She’s got style. And she’s a powerhouse, working at the cross-section of women and money. Read more about Amanda’s story here.
Amanda’s cutting-edge work discovered that traditional financial advice for budgeting and investing was useful for only a portion of women, and wondered why. She surveyed hundreds of women to discover that there are 5 MoneyTypes across women, and each of these types require different kinds of information, tools and “strategies.”
Amanda’s talk, “Together, We Grow,” helps redefine the relationship between women, self-worth, and money.
She shows women how to view money as a source of personal power and freedom by outlining the missing financial information that institutions and advisors don’t spell out. She helps us understand why we’re often stressed and anxious when it comes to our finances, and help us move away from strict budgeting and other harsh austerity practices to instead view money as a source of freedom and independence, regardless of age and income.
We also invited 5 founders of local women’s organizations for a panel after Amanda’s talk.
We had a transparent discussion on women and money, by hearing female leaders speak about her personal relationship with money (fears and all), and what Amanda’s work illuminates for them personally and as leaders of an organization. The discussion went on to cover what becomes possible when women are engaged – personally and collectively – to wield financial resources as significant decision makers in the political, economic, cultural and non-profit spheres.
What an amazing night!
