Our pan-sector campaign to take meaningful action to improve the financial wellbeing of our wāhine launched with a bang and is well and truly underway! Here's what's coming up over the next 3 months...

The three-month campaign is taking place from 2 May-29 July, with fortnightly themes that focus on different topics. The FSC is organising seven key activities targeting industry over the period, ranging from webinars and in-person sessions to interactive activities. Our supporters are carrying out their own activities and events in support of these themes.

May 2-15 (and throughout the campaign period): #LetsTalkAboutMoney social media challenge

Supporters on LinkedIn, Instagram and Facebook have been getting on board our #LetsTalkAboutMoney challenge - using our conversation cards to start money chats with colleagues, friends and whānau. Join in and help us break the taboos surrounding money conversations! 

Find out more about the challenge and download your own conversation starter cards.
