According to a recent study, women are more likely to be financially vulnerable than men (24% versus 17%) – meaning they struggle in nearly all areas of their financial lives.*

At Meredith, we’ll prepare you to take responsibility for yourself and your own success in all areas of your life, including your finances. Through StrongPoints®, you’ll begin to develop the skills you need to care for yourself in this essential, but often overlooked, aspect of your life.

Here are some of the ways you can build your financial literacy:

  • Work with our certified financial educators in one-on-one coaching sessions to identify areas of growth in your financial literacy
  • Learn to build a budget that distinguishes between wants and needs
  • Develop an understanding of issues that maximize your credit score
  • Learn to discern comparative details of compensation packages
  • Practice negotiating skills for job offers, benefits packages, promotions, and more
