Alabama Women's Network Exchange Focusing on Financial Literacy

The Alabama Women's Commission invites you to attend the Alabama Women's Network Exchange Thursday, October 31 from 11:30am -1:00 pm at the Business Council of Alabama Auditorium.
(1st Floor, 2 North Jackson Street, Montgomery)

   We are very grateful to Protective Life Foundation for sponsoring this lunch event focusing on financial literacy and education.
Financial literacy is a topic of critical interest to women and their families. We would like to learn more about the work organizations throughout the state are doing regarding this important issue and give you a chance to see how you can benefit from the work that others are doing.

   We will have a brief presentation by two agencies. Rene Day, Shelby County Coordinator of Career & Technical Education, College & Career Planning, and Community Partnerships will discuss the exciting financial literacy program Shelby County Schools is implementing. Joan Sulzman, Economic Justice Projects Coordinator for the Alabama Coalition Against Domestic Violence will also be sharing about the financial literacy training they offer for women in domestic violence situations. The presentations will be followed by lunch and a time of networking.

   Limited space is available for the lunch so be sure to call Sarah Skipper at 334-202-6553 or email sarah.skipper@servealabama.gov or reserve your spot today! Participants must respond by Friday, October 25 at 5 pm. Directions and parking information will be sent to participants closer to the event date. We encourage you to bring any informational brochures you would like to share with the group as well as your business cards!

Call or email with any questions. We look forward to seeing you there!

   The Alabama Women’s Commission established the Alabama Women’s Network Exchange in 2009 in order to bring together leaders of organizations, agencies, and departments that work to improve the lives of women in the state. The network meets annually to share information about their organization’s current work, events, and issues of concern. Past events have focused on topics such as post-partum depression and issues of aging women.

Established in 1971, by Act of the Alabama Legislature, is a continuing vehicle for the determination of effective policy and legislation in areas affecting Alabama’s women. The commission is composed of three members of the House of Representatives, appointed by the Speaker of the House; two members of the Senate, appointed by the President Pro Tempore of the Senate; and 10 members appointed by the Governor.
