Let's Start The Conversation

Black women have made significant strides, yet face more hurdles to financial success than any other group in the United States. But, there's strength in the sisterhood. And (hash tag) together we can change that dynamic through education, reassurance, and support.

What's holding you back?

Financial missteps, past mistakes, things you wish you would've known? Whatever it is, Chase and Essence want to help you let it go.

Through education. Through reassurance. Through support.

Only by releasing what is weighing us down are we able to move forward–lighter, freer, and inspired. Only by sharing these perceived secrets can we take away their power, and replace them with the energy needed to propel ourselves forward. Stop looking back and start looking forward. What are your currency confessions?

Through conversation with one another as well as with experts, we can shed what weighs us down and pursue our dreams.

Step 2: Engage
your circle

Women talking with each other

Talking about money is a BOLD step and we want you to know you are not alone.

We invite you to gather your girlfriends, sisters, aunties and co-workers to break the taboo of talking about money. Start with the first chapter of our Toolkit to get started on focusing on a specific financial topic and actions you can take to achieve your goals.
