Junior League Of New Orleans Hosts Financial Literary Series For Women



NEW ORLEANS - The Junior League of New Orleans (JLNO) has developed a Financial Literacy for Women curriculum which focuses on the five key financial topics of banking, borrowing, budgeting, saving and investing. With more than 41 percent of women struggling financially, it is imperative to increase financial knowledge.  Monthly seminars are free and open to the public:

Dec. 12 – Preventing Identity Theft

Jan. 9, 2018 – Saving Through Tax Refunds

Feb. 20, 2018 – Rising Food Costs

March 13, 2018 – Limited Income Earners

April 10, 2018 – Credit Report

May 8, 2018 – Preventing Foreclosure

6:30 p.m.

The series will be held at the Broadmoor Arts and Wellness Center, 3900 General Taylor St.

“Financial Literacy is a powerful tool to achieving and maintaining economic freedom, and it is often not taught in a traditional educational setting,” explained JLNO President Kristen Cocke Koppel. “Those without access to knowledge are susceptible to debt and poverty. With information about developing a household budget, creating an emergency savings account, and purchasing first home, financial literacy can be the tool that transforms women’s lives.”
