Episode 8: Money Matters: A Conversation about Making Financial Literacy Accessible to Everyone with Diane Keating from High Water Women
This New York City-based non-profit is addressing the financial education gap by providing financial literacy educational opportunities to low-income youth, as well as by focusing on the economic empowerment of women and children. High Water Women aims to give everyone - regardless of their current economic status - theskills necessary for a healthy financial future.
Founded in 2005 by women in the hedge fund and investment industries, High Water Women is dedicated to providing enriched educational opportunities for low-income youth and the economic empowerment of women and children. Theorganization also seeks to make an impact in other areas related to economic empowerment and education through their work in the impact investing space, as well as their annual backpack drive for low income children. By operating on these multiple levels, the impact of High Water Women's work is felt both broadly and deeply by the NYC community, and as Executive Director Diane Keating talks about in this interview, their aim is to scale their impact in the coming years. In this interview we speak about why financial literacy matters to everyone, what High Water Women's financial literacy work looks like, and how individual donors can really have an impact on this organization's ability to keep doing the excellent work they do.
