MY MONEY WORKSHOP ANNOUNCES FIRST-EVER VIRTUAL FINANCIAL LITERACY FORUM SPONSORED BY JPMORGAN CHASE ON APRIL 27 FROM 9 a.m. to NOON
New York, NY (April 20, 2021) – My Money Workshop, a financial literacy organization that emphasizes the importance of wise and secure financial decision-making to teens and adults, is proud to announce its first-ever virtual Financial Literacy Forum in celebration of Financial Literacy Month on April 27 from 9 a.m. to noon.
This event is graciously sponsored by JPMorgan Chase. Through their Path Forward initiative, JPMorgan Chase is addressing the existing racial wealth gap in the U.S., which puts a strain on families’ economic mobility and restricts the U.S. economy.
“We are dedicated to teaching people how to make the most of their money and reach their financial goals,” said Nichol King, Community Manager for Chase in Harlem. “Collaborating with organizations like My Money Workshop gives us the opportunity to reach people in new and engaging ways that will advance our mission to create sustainable, inclusive growth in Harlem and beyond.”
The Financial Literacy Forum will celebrate the significance of the partnerships that My Money Workshop has formed thus far. Industry experts, including clients and corporate partners, will be present at the event to engage in discussions that will focus on the importance of financial literacy, financial freedom, and the intersection between poverty, equity, and access.
My Money Workshop strives to demonstrate to each of its participants that there is power in knowledge. Since its inception, My Money Workshop has partnered with over 90 public and private high schools, colleges, universities, specialty schools, and community-based organizations to deliver customized financial literacy workshops in the NY Tri-State area. Each of the seminars included in their programs are tailored to the school or agency’s participants.
“It is only through community partnerships that we can make a huge impact in the lives of our participants,” says Gineyda Diaz, My Money Workshop’s Executive Director. “The forum highlights the partnerships, but also the other institutions that are actively doing things to further the financial literacy and the economic success of individuals.”
