“There’s a lot of jargon when it comes to money… words that people don’t use in day-to-day English, it just becomes scary.”
The Importance Of Financial Literacy – Grace Mugabe
So Crisp Podcast
In 2018, the UN women organisation wrote a list of facts and figures about economic empowerment. In it they stated, “women’s economic empowerment is central to realising women’s rights and gender equality.”
Did you know “women constitute around half of the 258 million migrants who live and work outside their countries of birth? Migrant women and girls outnumber men and boys in all regions except Africa and Asia.” That’s also from the UN women facts list, and speaks directly to the need for economic literacy and licence to play a central role in ensuring equity for women and the success of the economies they work in.
Grace Mugabe is doing something about that very issue, right here in Australia, on the ground.
She brings her extensive experience in Accounting with her corporate background to deliver financial literacy to provide practical and comprehensive financial education that is affordable and accessible for women and disenfranchised communities.
Today, we’re talking about financial literacy. Not just for businesswomen, but for all women. How having it changes lives and communities and society. And with Grace in the So Crisp hot seat, we’re bound to learn something.
