Our guest today is Georgia Graham, Programs Manager of WEST (Women's Enterprise Skills Training). Their mission is to improve the employability of women in Windsor-Essex County.

WEST completed their own study which focused on identifying their community's financial needs, and whose results paralleled our own. The study Women's Financial Preparedness: Bridging the Divide in Windsor-Essex found that women were less knowledgeable than men when it came to financial products and financial indicators.

WEST's Needs Assessment Study concluded that there were three main vulnerable groups within Windsor-Essex. These vulnerable groups of women struggle to not only become, but to maintain a moderate level of financial preparedness.
