Empowering Women for Financial Freedom

Just about 50 years ago, a woman’s financial identity was tied explicitly to someone else. Today, women make up about half of the American workforce, yet women are still less likely than men to put together a financial plan.

Join BN360 and hear from the dynamic Stella Fey about:

  • How small changes now can add up to big results later
  • How to have a better understanding of your current financial situation and future needs
  • Tools for making informed financial decisions moving forward

This will be held on Wednesday, March 11 from 5:30- 7:30 p.m. at Alliance Advisory Group located at 600 Delaware Ave, Buffalo, NY 14202.

Ticket Info: Free for BN360 members, and $25 for non-members.
