The panelists from diverse backgrounds shared insights and expertise, emphasizing the importance of overcoming fears surrounding money and the necessity of financial education. Questions such as “What do you wish you knew about money, even going back to your childhood?” prompted discussions on dispelling myths, distinguishing good advice from bad, and finding the balance between spending and saving. Key takeaways included the significance of setting financial goals, creating structured budgets, and understanding debt management strategies.

The latter part of the event featured a workshop by Wealthsimple focusing on money mindset, goal setting, and transforming financial attitudes. Attendees explored their upbringing’s impact on money habits, learned about smart goal-setting techniques, and engaged in discussions on proactive financial planning.

As the event concluded, participants were left equipped with practical tools, refreshed mindsets, and a renewed commitment to financial empowerment and healing within the Black community.
