8 Minutes With | Lorna Kapusta at Fidelity Investments

Money. Capital. Cash. Whatever you call it, chances are that discussing it with others makes you feel a little uncomfortable.

But Lorna Kapusta is challenging the status quo and working to change the relationships that women have with their finances through Fidelity’s Women Talk Money community.

Generally speaking, women on average earn less and, so we’ve learned, are given fewer financial education tools than male counterparts when younger and throughout life – even though we’re still met with the same responsibilities and on top of those, there are factors that are unique to women (think healthcare costs, pink tax, and often caregiving responsibilities to name a few). Gaining and maintaining control of finances can feel like an everlasting battle, especially when we’re left to navigate our understanding of saving, investing, credit cards and retirement, to name a few.
