Bridging the Confidence Gap Between Women and Wealth

Bridging the Confidence Gap Between Women and Wealth

Women are a huge economic force, with women’s wealth, income, and financial strength growing faster than ever. Research suggests that women may soon control the majority of US household wealth, and nearly half are the primary breadwinners in their households today. But in spite of this, many women still lack confidence when it comes to financial planning, investing, and managing their wealth compared to their male counterparts. It’s a vulnerable feeling for many women that spans all ages, ethnicities, industries, and income levels.

RISE Collaborative is bringing together three influential women who work in the wealth industry to share their expertise and knowledge to illuminate this confidence gap and most importantly, tools for every woman to feel more capable and confident in their financial lives.

You won’t want to miss this event! Join us at RISE St. Louis on March 26th from 5:30 - 7:30 pm.

Food for Thought - Becoming Conversationally Intelligent

“Becoming Conversationally Intelligent” Led by RISE Member Kim Baker.

You’ve heard of EQ-Emotional Intelligence. But what do you know about CIQ™ which is Conversational Intelligence? Words create worlds, both professional and personal! Cultures in business and family & friend communities are dependent upon the health of relationships, which are dependent upon the quality of our conversations.

Join RISE Founding Member and qualified CIQ™ coach Kim S. Baker and learn how our brain’s neurochemistry determines the quality of our conversations, relationships, and culture. In this workshop we’ll generate awareness of tactics and skills to regulate neurochemistry - ours and others - to create conversations that move us and others from "resistor" to "partner & collaborator." CIQ™ improves relational trust and creates advocates, allies, and friends. Bring a target conversation (such as a new conversation you need to have; revisit and restart an unsuccessful conversation; or improve an ongoing conversation) to work on during the workshop and walk out with an approach and key steps to improve that conversation.
