Women executives and emerging leaders connect with female students for a morning of networking, mentoring, and financial education. Junior Achievement’s core belief is that Opportunity is for Everyone. With the support of experts, participants will learn about the financial obstacles facing women today and work together to acquire skills in financial literacy as a building block for achieving economic equity. Join us for round-table discussions, interactive activities, and compelling lessons from local influential women. JA F.E.M.
