Women's financial literacy is a factor of financial well-being

The subject of women's financial literacy will be discussed at one of the sessions of the forthcoming II Eurasian Women's Forum in September in St. Petersburg, organized with the participation of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation and the World Bank.

International expert session ‘Financial Literacy. International Experience and Best Practices’ participants will discuss the strategy of economic education programs and their impact on the willingness of women to engage in entrepreneurship in Russia. Ksenia Yudaeva, the First Deputy Governor of the Central Bank, will moderate the session.

The session aims to draw attention to the topic of financial education and financial literacy programs that are being implemented in Russia and abroad, to reveal the relationship between boosting financial literacy and the overall well-being of women and their families, and to outline further steps to enhance the outreach and effectiveness of financial literacy programs.
