While lack of financial literacy is a growing concern for many today, relatively little research has been conducted on how girls think about and experience money and finances. To address this gap, the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI) conducted a nationwide survey with over 1,000 girls ages 8−17 and their parents to better understand girls’ level of financial literacy and attitudes towards money.

Join Girl Scouts of the USA on May 13 for a webinar that will highlight both the results of the recently released GSRI study Having It All: Girls and Financial Literacy and Girl Scouts of the USA’s national program portfolio. As well, Louisa Quittman from the Department of the Treasury will provide a perspective on federal policy and resources for promoting financial education among young people.

Webinar presenters include:

  • Kimberlee Salmond, Senior Research Strategist at the Girl Scout Research Institute.
  • Louisa Quittman, Director of Financial Education at the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
  • Andrea Bastiani Archibald, Ph.D., Developmental Psychologist at Girl Scouts of the USA.

The national survey and webinar are conducted by the Girl Scouts of the USA. CEE supports their financial literacy efforts, although we are not formally connected with this work. If you have questions, please reach out to the Girl Scouts directly.

Are American students equipped to negotiate economic realities?

With constant changes in the housing, job, and stock markets, not to mention international trade, American students more than ever need to know how our economy connects with the world around us. As tomorrow’s consumers, investors, and voters, are students equipped to interpret financial news, make decisions about negotiating a college loan, and understand how economic policies affect their wallets?

The Nation’s Report Card: Economics 2012, Grade 12 reveals how well 12th-grade students know and apply the concepts of microeconomics, macroeconomics, and international trade in real-world contexts, as measured by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP).

Join the National Assessment Governing Board for a webinar exploring the results of this timely report. Webinar panelists include Nan J. Morrison, CEE’s President and CEO; and Edward Alvarez, Assistant Principal, Thomas A. Edison Career & Technical Education High School, who was honored at the 2012 Visionary Awards as one of CEE’s Teacher Champions.
