K-State Research and Extension Sedgwick County is holding a Women’s Investment Education Program beginning in April 2017. Women will learn about stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and retirement accounts in a non-threatening environment.
Women earn 1 trillion dollars a year, yet they still often lack the knowledge and confidence to invest their money. A recent Harris poll shows that only 53 percent of women have the confidence to invest, as compared to the 82 percent of men who are confident investors.
This class is open to all women who want to learn about the investments they already have or want to gain confidence before investing.
This six-week series will be held on Thursday evenings, April 6 through May 11, 2017 at the Sedgwick County Extension Center. The workshop will be held in the evenings, from 6-8 p.m., in the Sunflower Room. The cost for the entire series is only $20, which is a very low price for a six-week course.
