Full Agenda

  • Financial Literacy

    Aileen Tapia
    William Gonzalez
    Rockwell Automation

    How much do you know about money? Maybe a little, maybe a lot – so let’s talk about finances. We often find ourselves going through a huge learning curve when we think about money – however, we want to break that cycle. We will explore topics such as: How can we best manage our money as we transition to the corporate world? My company offers benefits – how do I understand what they really mean? The objective is to bring awareness to a subject that for many is a taboo.
