On October 11th at 2pm Eastern Standard Time, Invest In Girls along with Jewish Women International and the National Endowment for Financial Education will be holding a TweetChat on Twitter about closing the gender gap in financial literacy under the hashtag #InvestInHer. In the lead up to that event, we have profiled a woman working to address that issue. Katherine M. Sauer, Ph. D is the Vice President, Research and Programs for the National Endowment for Financial Education.
Girls, who too-often struggle with personal finance and are wary of financial careers, will be getting a needed boost in their classrooms nationwide, thanks to a merger of two nonprofit financial education organizations: the Council for Economic Education (CEE) and Invest in Girls (IIG).
