Announcing Women’s Money Week

If you’ve been reading MoneyCrush for a while, you probably already know that I’m involved in a variety of projects.

Well, one of those projects is something new that I’m super excited about: the first annual Women’s Money Week. I’ve been working on the project with Elizabeth Sanberg, who is the co-founder of and one of the Wise Bread staff writers.

Women’s Money Week will be held March 5th-11th. It’ll be similar to a week long blog carnival, but with prizes, tools & content created especially for that week. Content will be posted both on itself and on participants’ blogs throughout the week.

The topics

The idea is to encourage women to speak up about money, take control of our finances, and reshape our financial future.

This year’s topics will be:

  • Entrepreneurship / Making Money
  • Relationships & Money
  • Saving & Investing
  • Budgeting
  • Money in Your 20s/30s/40s/50s/Retirement
  • Debt
  • and Goals / Taking Action

How you can be involved

There are two ways you can participate, and we’d love to have you do one or both!

First, of course, everyone who is interested is welcome to read and comment on the articles and site during that week. We want to get some good discussions going.

(We’ve got some other ideas up our sleeves too, so if you’d like to be the first to hear about those, sign up for our general email list using the “Stay Updated” form on Women’s Money Week.)

If you’re a blogger, you can also participate by blogging about one or more of the topics on their designated days. If you’re interested in doing that, sign up on the How to Participate page and we’ll get you added to the list.

I hope you’ll join in!
