Women, Money, and Heart

Lincoln Savings Bank 1922 Ingerasoll Avenue, Des Moines, IA, United States

Join an engaging woman led conversation around the heart of money! In our society, women are taught not to talk about money. It is time to realize that how women approach money is different from men. When women approach the money we earn, the money we spend, and the money we invest with confidence and ease, we create more wealth and abundance in our businesses, in our families, and in our communities. It is through conversation that women remove the cultural taboo and learn we are not alone. It is through conversation that women change the culture so we can lead with heart. Come sit at our table and join the conversation.
