Dr. Mara Harvey on the subject of unpaid work:

"Men spend more time at work. Women spend more time working".

Paul Hailey:

“Now is the time – a wave of educated, motivated young women are entering the workforce in the developing world, creating profound social and economic change.”

A big thanks to advocate and author, Dr. Mara Catherine Harvey, who joined us on her quest to bestow financial confidence at an early age and to empower the next generation. As women are currently underserved as investors and are also the most critical group to invest in, this is an important movement that affects the future prosperity of all people, in every country around the world.
