Financial education for women
Sunday 20 June 2021
UniCredit’s series SAVE4WOMEN wishes to raise awareness on the correct management of savings and investments while strengthening women's empowerment.
Surveys have found that Italians, especially women, know little about economics and finance, showing minimal knowledge of their own economic situation and the tools available to them to manage it.
UniCredit’s Save4Women project has therefore set itself the objective of creating greater awareness among women about the importance of acquiring basic financial education. Better female participation in financial decisions will in fact encourage proactive management of their long-term savings.
The project will comprise six Digital Talks moderated by Chiara Tagliaferri, author of the podcast Morgana with Michela Murgia, and six Financial Education videos with Irene Facheris, an influencer specialised in gender stereotypes, sexism, feminism and LGBTQ+ rights.
