International Women's Day 2022: Girl's Inc. of Worcester
In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, 2022 SullivanKreiss Financial had the privilege of running an International Women’s Day event at Girl’s Inc. of Worcester. Girl's Inc. is a phenomenal non-profit that began as The Worcester Girls Club many years ago thanks to a small, dedicated group of community members giving ethical, educational, and social advantages to girls of lower income families.
The seminar was provided to the young women of Girl’s Inc. as well as their parents. The seminar began with separate presentations for the girls and the parents. Morgan met with the girls and provided them with “Financial Fundamentals”. Topics discussed included understanding a paystub, taxes, the power of compounding interest, writing a check, and many other concepts. Simultaneously, Kerri was joined by Becca Haberman, who recently retired from her career as a guidance counselor at Algonquin Regional high school. Becca and Kerri presented in a separate space to parents on the college application process.
Following the initial presentations, the parents and the girls joined back together for a panel discussion. The panel consisted of strong, smart, and bold women who kindly volunteered their time to talk to the girls about their careers and their journeys to becoming successful in their respective industries. There were 5 panelists that joined Kerri, all working in different fields and industries.
