Welcome to the It Starts With Action Summit 2022!

The three-month It Starts With Action campaign is being undertaken in collaboration with Te Ara Ahunga Ora Retirement Commission and over six fortnightly themes, aims to make impactful change to the financial confidence and wellbeing of New Zealand women.

This event will spotlight some of the incredible actions that have been taken over the three month campaign and celebrate those who have supported it from the beginning.

However, this event is not the end of the FSC’s commitment to growing women’s financial confidence and wellbeing – it's simply the beginning.

We’ll also be using the Summit as an opportunity to reflect and consider how we progress the conversations that have been started as a result of the campaign.

Join us in Auckland (or online) for an incredible lineup of speakers and help us shape the future projects we undertake in this important space.
