Vanity Fair and Fidelity Investments hosted a panel discussion entitled “Empowering Conversations: Rewriting the Script of Your Life” last week.
Moderator was Keltie Knight, and panelists included actress Kate Walsh, Clique Media Co-Founder and CEO Katherine Power, and Co-Founder and CMO of the mobile marketplace Spring, Ara Katz. Fidelity’s President of Personal Investing, Kathleen Murphy was the evening’s keynote speaker.
The panel discussed the pivotal moments that helped get them to where they are today, and the everyday challenges, biggest opportunities and moments that inspired them to take action along the way.
Fidelity joined Vanity Fair in hosting this event aiming to drive more awareness and discussion around the importance of women taking charge of their future – including the role engagement in financial decisions have on reaching short- and long-term goals throughout their lives.Today, more women are running businesses, earning degrees, and controlling more wealth than ever before.
The irony is this: If women have the power to change the financial landscape, why are only 37% of them confident making financial decisions? This needs to change. Fidelity is committed to providing women with the resources and opportunities they need to become more knowledgeable, confident and empowered to take control of their financial choices and become more active investors, ensuring that the money they’ve worked hard to earn, is working hard for them.
