Women drive 70-80% of all consumer purchasing. These purchases make businesses and elevate their investors. As consumers, women hold the power to influence the world. At Uplift, we are on a mission to help women to extend their influence as investors. Join our conversation on Women, Money and Power. It is only with gratitude, we can influence the world toward better decisions.
