House of Women learn financial wellness
The bank re-affirmed its commitment to the empowerment of women by sponsoring this Personal Financial Wellness workshop for women, organized by the House of Women (HOW). The workshop is presented and facilitated by certified Financial Advisor, Afra Schimming-Chase of Chase & Associates. It takes place on 4 and 5 April 2013 at the Vineyard Lodge in Avis, Windhoek and the aim is to empower women to take charge of their personal financial matters.
“Bank Windhoek is committed to educate its stakeholders on financial literacy to empower them to make informed decisions on their personal finances. This is especially important for women, many of whom some still continue to be financially dependent on men. Bank Windhoek also supports and endorses the Financial Literacy Initiative launched by the Minister of Finance last year.” said Marlize Horn, Executive Officer: Marketing and Corporate Communication Services at Bank Windhoek.
“The workshop has a very strong practical and interactive focus, women will get to share their stories around their relationships with money, deal with their own beliefs and mind-sets about money and walk away with new tools to handle their finances positively and effectively. Since many women head households these days, they are often the main, if not the only breadwinner. It is thus really important to ensure that they have all they need to keep head above water,” said Afra Schimming-Chase.
