Our Goal

Our goal is to instill young women with a sense of purpose and skills for a financially independent future.

41% of young women fear investing because they fear they don’t know enough.

43% of women wish they were more confident in making financial decisions.

Only 37% of Fortune 500 companies have women CEOs.

Women are 18% less likely to speak up in public than men.

These statistics and too many more like them demonstrate the clear gender disparity in economics, finance, and leadership for women. We, at Invest in Her, are trying to change that.
