Our Money Power

Our Money Power

OUR MONEY POWER is a podcast for women who are ready to own money conversations, invest with values, and make money moves that matter. Women hold only a fraction of the wealth that men do, and historically, that's by design. Join us on this journey toward wealth building and values-aligned investing. Social entrepreneur Kristin Hayden hosts conversations with women who are not only financial experts and leaders, but also champions of inclusion. It is time to activate Our Money Power!

Welcome to this Special Episode of OUR MONEY POWER - which was recorded live in a packed room of powerhouse women at The Battery Club in San Francisco. We were so excited to do our first recording with a live audience as part of The Battery Club’s women’s history month program. It was great to have the enthusiasm and engagement from the live audience, who also got to ask questions in our wrap up.

In this episode, I’m in conversation...

We’ve talked a lot on the OUR MONEY POWER podcast about the significant and pervasive wealth gap between men and women - which is even bigger when it comes to Black and Brown women. I wanted to dig deeper into the systemic and historical reasons this wealth gap exists in the first place and talk to someone who is actually offering solutions to close that gap. Shelly Omilâdè Bell, who goes by Omi, founded Black Girl Ventures to tran...

Earlier this year I learned about some fascinating research from the global financial services firm UBS. It explores how women in long-term relationships divide up responsibility for financial decisions. Almost half of women say they defer on money matters to their spouse or partner. But would they do that if they knew that 8 in 10 women, at some point in their lives, due to life circumstances, will be left to manage their own fina...

Last year, venture capitalists invested more than $428 million in U.S. startups every day. And how much do you think went to companies led by women entrepreneurs? For every dollar invested, women founders got just three cents. And if you were a woman of color founder, it’s not even one cent.

What would the world look like if we invested in women- and women-of-color led companies at the same rate we invest in our male count...

We talk a lot about investing with our values on this podcast, as well as examining our own relationship to money. These are important steps to BEING in our money power as women.  We know also that we are much more likely to feel better about our relationship to money when it aligns with our values - and several of our previous guests have shared how we can do that when investing. 

Beyond our long-term investments, how about our dai...

Just about every guest on Our Money Power makes the point that women are values-driven investors. We want to grow our wealth — and we want to know our money is having a positive impact on the world we live in.

But many of us still don’t know where to start. What are the best products and tools for investing with our values? What questions should we even be asking? How do we take the first step?

Our guest today, C...

The next time you are pulling out cash to pay for something, take a closer look at the signatures engraved on those bills. Chances are you’ll find the signature of today’s guest, Rosie Rios. Rosie was the United States Treasurer under President Obama, and her signature is on more than a trillion dollars of currency in circulation around the globe. Now that’s some real money power!

But Rosie’s real legacy isn’t her signature. She hel...

I sometimes get asked, what does it mean for women to stand in our money power? And on this podcast, we talk a lot about personal finance, about the importance of not just saving but investing and building wealth, and about breaking taboos that prevent many women from talking openly about the ways money can be an expression of our values.

But money power can mean other things, too. My guest on this episode, Lisha Bell, used her voic...

Let’s talk about your relationship status…

What comes to mind when you hear this? Married, single, divorced, dating, or “it’s complicated”?  Our culture — — through the movies - music - social media -everywhere we turn,  we’re bombarded with messages of finding true love, and then sustaining it.

But have you ever thought about your relationship status in regards to money? 

Is it a relationship that feels supportive and nurturing? Does...

Does thinking about money and building wealth inspire you? Or is it a turn-off?

Is dealing with finances just one more stressful thing you need to worry about in an already busy life? Or is it something that you actually enjoy? Something that brings meaning to your life?

What motivates you to care about money?

My guest today says the reason many women feel disempowered around our personal and family finances is because so much of the ...

Who do you think make better investors--women, or men? Researchers have been asking that question going all the way back to the 90s, and, over and over, studies confirm that women get better investment returns, on average, than men. 

But the differences go beyond net gains and losses. Making money is not enough for most women. We want to invest with our values and create a better world through our money!

Did you know that for every dollar in wealth that men have accumulated—in their retirement accounts, their stock portfolios, in real estate, in the businesses they own—women have just 32 cents? And If you’re a Black woman or Latina, it’s even worse—like pennies on the dollar!

Of course we don’t need the research to tell us what we already know and feel on a daily basis, that women, on average, earn less than men, put their money in ...
