Women in the Money Conference
Women in the Money is hosted by the Utah State Treasurer as an initiative of the Utah Financial Empowerment Coalition. The conference aims to empower Utah women to achieve financial security by providing access to crucial financial information, valuable resources, and new mentors and friends.
The conference enables Utah women of all ages, cultures, and financial situations to learn, exchange ideas, and grow together. The overarching message is that it is never too late, nor too early, to learn about finances.
Women have the opportunity to grow their financial acumen through informational messaging and actionable advice in general session speeches, as well as through more tailored information and training during smaller workshops. Attendees choose topics that will lead them on a pathway to financial freedom and success.
