Em-Power luncheon to celebrate Equal Pay Day, March 31

Press release from Kudzu Brands: 

Webb Investment Services will celebrate Equal Pay Day and International Women’s day with an Em-Power Luncheon on March 31 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. in Asheville, NC. This is the date that marks the 16 months it takes a woman to earn as much as a man did the year before.

Webb Investment Services is a female-owned financial services practice that helps individuals, particularly women, make smart choices about their money. The event is open to the public and will take place at Pack’s Tavern Century Room in Asheville.

This year, the theme for the event is “50 Shades of Money, How to dominate your financial future.”

50 Shades of Money will explore a multigenerational perspective on how women think about money and how their money mindset can make a difference in feeling a sense of dominance over their financial future

The Em-Power Lunch event will commemorate both International Women’s Day and Equal Pay Day. International Women’s Day, officially on March 8th, is a global celebration of how far women have come throughout the years, socially, economically and culturally. Equal Pay Day, on the other hand, occurs on March 31st in the United States and was created to foster awareness about the differences between men’s and women’s wages.

This second annual event aims to be a powerful reminder that, while women have made great strides in the last century, they still have a long way to go. At the Em-Power Lunch, keynote speakers Laura Webb, CFP® Principal, and Faith Doyle, MBA, CFP® Financial Advisor Associate, both of Webb Investments, will discuss how women can collectively transition into a new mindset about their money and the role they play, as well as society, in creating their financial futures.

All event proceeds will go to the OnTrack WNC Women’s Empowerment Center, which provides a full range of financial counseling and education services with a women-centered approach, responding to women’s unique needs and perspectives, to help them reach their financial goals.
