This year's conference is sponsored by the Women's Foundation of Lincoln and Lancaster County, (formerly the Friends of the Mayor's Commission on Women), AARP Nebraska and Lincoln Benefit Life.
A recent survey of over 1,200 women in Lincoln and Lancaster County showed that the rising costs of health care, food and utilities combined with employment concerns present daily challenges for women trying to manage their financial resources, said Kathie Uhrmacher, chair of the Women's Foundation.
"The Mayor's Commission on Women and the Women's Foundation are committed to helping women get the information they need to make good financial decisions now and for the future," Uhrmacher said. "We appreciate the continued support of AARP and Lincoln Benefit Life in our efforts to provide programming for women's financial literacy."
Connie Benjamin, State Director of AARP Nebraska, said the conference will help women take charge of their financial futures whether they are just starting out in their 20s or managing their hard-earned nest eggs in retirement.
"Attendees of all ages will find the insights and useful ideas provided by financial experts relevant to their lives," she said.
