About this event

In 2017, Tama Smith partnered with financial planning and advisory firm Brighton Jones to launch the Women Living a Richer Life division, focused on empowering women to meet their unique financial challenges. A graduate of the Wharton Business School and UC Berkley, Tama's research over the past 3 years into the relationship that whip smart, highly successful professional women have with their money uncovered some strong - and sometime surprising - themes. In this dynamic event, Tama will share these powerful insights. Joined in this event by her colleague Manisha Thakor (author of GET FINANCIALLY NAKED: How to Talk Money with Your Honey) they will cover a wide range of topics including investing, pay equity, having "the money talk"—be it with your partner, your aging parents, or your young adult children—and how to invest in your emotional wealth in tandem with your financial health. Join us for an engaging discussion about the essential building blocks to create the financial future you want for your life.
