YWCA and Women in Super team up for New Zealand Money Week

Press release for immediate release Monday 3rd September 2012

YWCA and Women in Super team up for New Zealand Money Week

New Zealand’s first Money Week is running from September 2nd – 8th 2012. Organisations across the education, financial and community sectors have organised a variety of Money Week events throughout New Zealand, with YWCA and Women in Super working together on Financial Literacy workshops for young women.

The YWCA goal of nurturing economic independence in young women is perfectly matched with Women in Super, who seek to spread the message about the need for women to be more financially aware throughout their lives, and to plan for their retirement.

The two organisations are running fun-filled financial lessons for life workshops for young women at high schools in Auckland and Wellington. In Wellington, three workshops are being held to add to the school’s existing financial and accounting courses. In Auckland, as part of the YWCA Future Leaders Programme, the workshops are run by SavY, a student run charitable trust.

YWCA and Women in Super see this new partnership during Money Week as a great opportunity to improve the financial literacy of young New Zealand Women.
