Episode #5: GameStop Xplained Pt. 2
In this episode, we explore how the GameStop frenzy highlighted the absence of women’s voices in conversations on investing. We discuss why women are missing from discussions like those about GameStop and why they participate less in the stock market.
Stocks are tools that we all can leverage to build wealth, but how should women begin engaging in market participation? We learn why accessing trusted information and using the skills that we already hone in managing our personal finances are important first steps to building our own stock portfolios. We continue our conversation with Kristin Myers, an award-winning journalist whose work recently focuses on financial news. She educates us on the disparity between men and women as it relates to investing and why there is no time like the present for women to leverage their consumer power to build wealth.
