Elevating Women

KNOW YOUR WEALTH.
OWN YOUR FUTURE.

 

As life changes, so do our needs and priorities. From building a career to designing a meaningful legacy, or starting a family to navigating an empty nest or loss of a spouse, having the resources to establish new goals and make confident financial decisions is essential to make the most of life’s many chapters.

We’ve created a community where women are working together to share their knowledge and experiences. Learn from each other and experts as we navigate pivotal life moments and work to turn the vision we have for our future into action.

When we come together, the possibilities are endless.

Our community in action

At our retreat for business-owning women, attendees were delighted to hear Director of Women & Wealth Steph Wagner interview Kendra Scott, Founder and Chairwoman of the eponymous billion-dollar jewelry company. They discussed their shared mission of elevating women and how Kendra melded her passion for fashion, family and philanthropy into an empire.
