During this time of uncertainty, when stock market values across the globe are volatile at best, many are worried about their financial future.
Innovative financial empowerment program Bridges to Wealth (B2W) strives to continue its goal of spreading the wealth by teaching financial empowerment to students, parents, and local community partners. With social-distancing in mind, they have adapted their monthly in-person investment meeting to a virtual format by launching the Adult Community Programming Town Hall series.
The first live town hall meeting led by Dr. Keith Weigelt, the Marks-Darivoff Family Professor of Strategy at The Wharton School, was held April 4. As the series continued, Dr. Weigelt covered the stock market, debt, and best practices during the economic downturn caused by the pandemic.
The Adult Community Programming meetings will run weekly on Thursdays at 6 p.m and are open to ongoing participants and newcomers.
