The Kingston Frontenac Public Library has announced that it will facilitate live financial literacy talks for women. The talks, beginning on July 13th, are designed to offer women a chance to improve their financial know how.
“Giving women insight into financial literacy helps ensure a secure financial future for women and for their families. Building financial skills and knowledge is critical not just in the daily management of money, but in closing wage and wealth gaps too,” said Anne Hall, Programming and Outreach Librarian at KFPL.
Financial Literacy for Women takes place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. with local financial advisor Laura Southall and Melissa Baker-Cox sharing their expertise in a virtual format. The duo is returning to the library after providing a popular talk in April, based on their 2020 book Rental Properties for Canadian Women.
“If you feel overwhelmed by all things financial — from affording your children’s post-secondary education to saving for your retirement — this talk and its three successors will cover the basics of financial literacy through to retirement and beyond,” said Hall.
This is the first of four upcoming presentations on financial literacy for women. Watch for the next installment on Tuesday, October 5: Getting Ready to Retire. It will be followed on Tuesday, November 2 by Saving Taxes in Retirement, and on Tuesday, November 30 by Passing On Your Wealth.
Patrons can register online at calendar.kfpl.ca or by phone at (613) 549-8888. Registrants will be emailed a Zoom link immediately upon registration, but will need to download the latest version of Zoom in advance to whichever device they will be using during the presentation.
