Financial Literacy


The AICPA launched 360 Degrees of Financial Literacy for Women, an expansion of its pro bono efforts to improve the public’s understanding of personal finance. The program’s Web site ( www.360financialliteracy ) contains more than 600 articles and planning tools women can use to focus on various aspects of their economic circumstances, including getting started on managing their finances more effectively, career planning and employee benefits, managing insurance and investments, coping with family financial issues and life-changing events and setting up and running a business. In addition, the site’s “Ask the Money Doctor” tool offers free personal finance advice from CPA/PFS practitioners and other volunteers with financial planning expertise.
