“Taking Control of your Financial Independence” Event Recap

EVENT RECAP: On 25 November 2021, NCWQ hosted our final Empowerment session for the year, inviting back three of our past presenters to wrap up our series. Caroline Snow, NCWQ’s vice president, hosted a panel discussion on how women can gain an understanding and start (or continue) their journey to financial independence. In this session, we discussed what financial independence looks like, and how to start those conversations. Since this was our last event for the year, we would like to thank our members and friends who have come along and made this a great year for NCWQ.
