"95% of women are either making or influencing the big financial decisions in their households, yet 86% have a lack of understanding of financial products," Center for Women's Business Advancement at Southern New Hampshire University Director MaryAnn Manoogian said. "This forum will give access to the experts and provide the information that women business professionals need to resolve financial issues in the office and at home."
"Financial education is the first step to financial success both personally and professionally," added Joe Carelli, president, Citizens Bank. "Citizens Bank Foundation is proud to be the event underwriter of this forum which is designed to help women expand their financial knowledge by providing access to sound advice and information.
