We Need to Talk… About Wealth For All Families

Welcome back to another episode of the Minority Money Podcast! Usually, it’d just be me and another guest– but for today, we’ll be having a “We Need to Talk” episode where we air out and talk about building generational wealth for all families.

In a country where the color of your skin has a say in how you achieve wealth and stability, this topic is meant to address the great divide and inequalities in both our societies and institutions. While the fight to make financial education more accessible is far from over, we cannot waver now because absolutely every family deserves financial security.

Be sure to join in on this conversation with Sonya Dreizler, Diana G. Yáñez, CFP®, Phuong Luong, CFP®!


>> Addressing the racial wealth divide

>> What people commonly think about financial literacy and history

>> How we work with clients in the face of systemic discrimination

>> When we realized just how systemic the racial wealth divide is

>> Why there is a lack of financial information amongst minorities

>> Advice and resources for financial planners and individuals
