A Lunch Conversation with Arizona State Treasurer Kimberly Yee
WHEN: September 4th 2019, 11:30 am
WHERE: Tucson Convention
Center, 260 South Church Avenue
We invite you to join us for a conversation with Arizona State
Treasurer and Girl Scout Alumna, Kimberly Yee, on empowering girls
to take the lead in their financial futures!
Despite its prominent role in daily life, the subject of financial literacy is largely absent from United States K-12 school curriculum. While an essential skill for all youth, financial literacy is especially critical to the well-being of girls. Financially-aware girls grow into financially-capable women better equipped to navigate existing disparities and structural barriers.
Girl Scouts engages girls in financial literacy beginning at age five, and throughout their progression in Girl Scouts. Every Girl Scout participates in our Financial Literacy program, including over 1,700 girls from historically underserved communities in our Social Impact Program.
Treasurer Kimberly Yee is one of six statewide elected Constitutional officers; the first Asian American elected to statewide office in Arizona's history; and a proud Girl Scout alumna who founded Troop 1920, a troop of elected women in statewide and legislative office. Join her and the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona for this crucial conversation, and help level the playing field for girls by offering hands-on opportunities to build a firm foundation of financial education.
