The financial system is inherently imbalanced and unequal. Instead of supporting those most in need, our society’s political and cultural structures perpetually suppress the growth of minority communities– especially girls of color. These inequalities and their embedded legacies can be overwhelming, unwieldy, and intimidating to tackle.
At BlackFem®, we are creating a new reality. And we’re starting where it matters most: schools with high concentrations of girls of color. We’re revolutionizing the education system by offering integrated, culturally-responsive financial and wealth literacy curriculums so that we can break the cycle of poverty. Armed with the skills, resources, and—most importantly—confidence they need to succeed, our students will be empowered to articulate and assert their worth.
While financial habits start in the classroom, their impact goes far beyond, providing sustainable benefits to whole communities for generations to come. Let’s start investing in the future, today.
Our mission is to transform school-based learning so that girls of color in underserved communities have the skills, habits and resources to build and sustain wealth.
