A Deeper Focus


Financial wellness for women

Green seedling growing out of a pile of coins.

The Women’s March San Luis Obispo (WMSLO) Hear Our Vote: Voices of Resistance Rally was held at Mission Plaza on Saturday, January 20th.  Women’s empowerment was a central theme reverberated by the impressive roster of speakers, the diverse slate of performers, the community resource booths in “Call To Action Alley” and roars from the vocal crowd.

Financial self-sufficiency is vital to women’s empowerment.  “90% of women will become totally responsible for their own financial wellbeing at some point in their lives” states Libbie Agran who developed the Economics of Being a Woman Financial Education programs.  ARE YOU PREPARED?  If you aren’t or could be better prepared, REGISTER TODAY for the Financial Wellness for Women seminar on April 28, Saturday 9am – 5pm at Sea Pines Golf Resort in Los Osos. “This seminar costs less per hour than a massage…and the knowledge that you gain will last a lifetime!” state presenters Andrea Wasko and Meaghan Gilbert.  “We provide unbiased financial education ONLY + DO NOT sell financial products!  The information that women learn in this seminar may help them with their business or in their career.”

Dawn Addis, founder of WMSLO believes that financial education and self-sustainability for women is paramount to their success.  Women face many financial challenges.  First, they are paid less than a man and tend to be less financially independent than men are.  These are hurdles for women in general, but they are also obstacles if they are interested in engaging in the political process.  Running for office takes time and money.  Women who may be excellent candidates for office may already be stretched financially, not affording them the opportunity to run.   “Financial education creates a better future for women at large and for democracy in general”, states Ms. Addis.

“In my experience as an attorney and advocate for women, I have seen first-hand the impact that financial insecurity has on women.   Financial education is so important as it empowers women and provides them with the confidence to know that they can take care of themselves.” states Jacqueline Frederick, Attorney at Frederick Law Firm and Board President of the San Luis Obispo County Latino Outreach Council.

Economics of Being a Woman is proud to be sponsored by Ecologistics and to support their mission to create a resilient and healthy community for the residents of the California Central Coast that is economically sustainable.
