StrongPoints: Financial


Example of Financial Literacy. Completing monthly expenses with calculator


According to a recent study, nearly half of women - 44% - are the primary breadwinners in their households. That same study found that women lack confidence when it comes to making financial decisions.*

At Meredith, we'll prepare you to take responsibility for yourself and your own success in all areas of your life, including your finances. Through StrongPoints, you'll begin to develop the skills you need to care for yourself in this essential, but often overlooked, aspect of your life.

Here are some of the ways you'll build your financial literacy through StrongPoints:

  • Learn to build a budget that distinguishes between wants and needs
  • Develop an understanding of issues that maximize your credit score
  • Understand comparative details of compensation packages
  • Practice negotiating skills for job offers, benefits packages, promotions, and more
