Past News: NMSU Extension to host financial management workshop for women

Date: 2012-04-09

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Financial management skills are necessary to have in the best of times; they are crucial during periods of economic uncertainty like the present – and they are especially crucial for women.

Women in New Mexico earn 81 percent of what men earn, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Fewer women have jobs with pension plans – 33 percent compared to 55 percent of men. Women live an average of seven years longer than men. Two-thirds of Americans over 55 living in poverty are women. Of the elderly poor, 75 percent are women, and of those, 80 percent were not poor before they were widowed.

To help women manage their finances better, New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension Service in the Albuquerque Metroplex is offering "Financial Management for Women" on Saturday, April 28, at the Bernalillo County Extension 4-H Center, 1510 Menaul NW, Albuquerque. The free workshop will be from 9 a.m.–noon. Read more.
