My award-winning talks on the topics of women and their money leave audience members with a lot to think about. This gendered lens gives a fresh take to an old topic. My talks can be tailored to your audience's needs.
Finance Professionals, Diversity Inclusion and Equity teams, Employee Resource Group teams, and HR teams like the actionable content Kristine delivers, and find that they inspire lively discussion on topics that are usually seen as bland and boring.
Kristine graduated from two of Canada's best universities with degrees in Engineering and Business (Queens University and Ivey Business School respectively). She has spoken at Brookfield Properties, Miller Thomsom, and RBC Royal Bank of Canada and her talks get rave reviews.
My inspiring life lessons:
I've spent my life in male-dominated spaces. My talents and tenacity meant that I could overcome almost any obstacle in my way until suddenly they weren't enough. I hit the dreaded glass ceiling and realized that things haven't changed as much as I thought. It was at this time that I realized that the financial lives of women are radically different from men, and these differences culminate in the gender wealth gap. The gender wealth gap is that for every dollar a man has in net wealth, women have just 32 cents. Even more shockingly, this statistic is trending in the wrong direction! You wouldn't design a retirement plan for a woman the same way you would for a man using this data. We discuss why the strategies and guidelines for women need to be different and what women can do differently.
