Ascend: Empowering Female Students for Success

Personal Financial Literacy 101     

Speaker: Vernita Dorsey, Senior Vice President, Director of
Community Strategy, WSFS Bank     

Many of us join the workforce without a lot of information or guidance about how to manage our income, how to save for big purchases, how to consider when investing is right, where to invest and how to make decisions about when and how to invest in retirement funds. Join us for guidance from experts in the field on these important issues.

While students learn tremendous insights in the classroom, we know that they are often unprepared for the day to day work challenges that face them in the real world. In particular, female students often lack the awareness and the skills to navigate implicit biases that prevent them from being as successful as possible. These one hour online sessions help equip female students with tools to be more effective in the workplace by introducing participants to successful female executives to serve as advisors and role models, teaching critical leadership skills, and inviting students to build community with other female students for continued learning. Each of these online sessions will include a 15-minute talk from a successful female executive and a facilitated breakout discussion where students meet one another and deepen their learning and connection.
