Know To Grow: Speaking Up: Women & The Money-Talk Taboo
Presented by Sharon Cox

Thursday, February 21, 2019
12 pm CST
(10 am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, 1 pm Eastern)


This webinar examines the high cost to women’s well-being when we don’t ‘speak up’ about money. Individually and collectively women are poised, more than ever, to find their voices. Yet we are often reluctant to have meaningful money talks. We will examine the roots of this reluctance and the benefits of having clear financial conversations with friends and family (strengthening relationships) and at work (enhancing our presence and negotiating skills). The session features practical examples to empower and encourage the audience to break the money-talk taboo. 


A financial professional for 30 years, Sharon's experience includes serving as a financial planner, socially responsible investment advisor, small business consultant, national conference manager, college instructor and private school director. Sharon is an award-winning speaker and author of materials published by the National Endowment for Financial Education.

Sharon holds BS and MS degrees in education from Indiana State University, a Certificate of Advanced Study from The University of Chicago and the Certified Financial Planner designation from the College for Financial Planning.
