Join ALPFA Boston for the 13th Annual Latina Summit. This year the summit will focus on providing insights, strategic advice, and best practices, in order for Latinas to secure financial independence and build wealth. Despite Latinas’ growing economic power, they continue to face unique challenges that affect their ability to build and preserve wealth.
These unique challenges include lower wages in comparison to Latino men and their white counterparts, higher uninsured rates and the burden of caring for elderly parents. ALPFA is proud to support the topic of financial literacy for Latinas who are challenged by the factors above.
From 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM there will be a Career Fair. The actual program will begin promptly at 5:30 PM.
GOLD Members can register for free. MEMBERSHIP WILL BE CONFIRMED. If you are not a Gold member, the registration will be revoked.
