Jessica Alba, Venus Williams to speak at Fidelity ‘Women Talk Money’ events

PROVIDENCE – Jessica Alba and Venus Williams are the featured speakers for Fidelity Investment Inc.’s annual series of virtual workshops about women and finance, according to a news release.

Alba, an actress and businesswoman, and Williams, tennis champion and entrepreneur, are among those who will share tips, tricks and personal insights during the 2023 Women Talk Money program, which kicks off on March 7. The monthlong series of workshops, roundtable discussions and Q&A sessions aims to help women discuss and strategize for their financial futures.

In advance of the upcoming series of events, Fidelity released new research showing the financial challenges – and successes – women are facing.

“Stress” was the top word women used to describe their feelings about money, compared with the 34% of men who shared that sentiment, according to the research. Still, nearly 9 in 10 women are making money moves – or planning to – even faster than their male counterparts. Indeed, the number of Fidelity retail accounts opened by women has jumped 65% from 2019 to 2022, compared with 60% growth among men, according to the research.
