Maximizing Latina Financial Power without Boundaries

On March 16, 2017, ALPFA Pittsburgh hosted a fireside chat withsuccessful Latinoprofessionals on financial planning and social investing.This year, the Women of ALPFA is embracing a truly ambitious goal – to empower Hispanic women to make an impact and succeed in the U.S. Society of today. While we know that women statistically make more of the spending decisions in U.S. households, what are the implications for Latinas, since they’ll soon constitute 30% of allwomen? As the income and education levels of Latinas advance, we need to consider the culturally significant differences, along with the tendencies that impact spending and investment patterns. Understanding the financial opportunities and inherent risks of this advancement is of utmost importance as we endeavor to increase the significant financial power of Latinas. It is for this reason that we, the Women of ALPFA,createdthis session about financial planning and social investing. The speakers were Rafael Munoz, Financial Advisor, BNY Mellon and Jackie Krakowski, PNC Bank.Dr. Monica Mendez, CEO of Dress for Success Pittsburghmoderated the fireside chat as the speakers gave tips and strategies to achieve financial success. The event was held at PNC's newest tower, which is the greenest building in the country.After the powerful discussion, attendees enjoyed drinks andhors d'oeuvres and a breathtaking tour ofthe new PNC Tower.
