Wealth Literacy Expert | Leader for Wealth Justice
MY MISSION is to increase the wealth literacy of people traditionally distrustful of and/or inexperienced with financial products (such as bank accounts, credit cards, and brokerage accounts) through educational programming that fosters discussion and teaches consumers how to build real and lasting wealth.
The financial system is inherently unbalanced and unequal. Instead of supporting those most in need, our society’s political and cultural structures perpetually suppress the growth of minority communities– especially girls of color. These inequities and their embedded legacies can be overwhelming, unwieldy, and intimidating to tackle.
Chloe McKenzie is creating a new reality. And she is starting where it matters most: the financial institutions that typically overlook financially disadvantaged population and school districts with high concentrations of girls of color. Chloe is revolutionizing the financial services industry and education system by offering integrated, culturally-responsive financial and wealth literacy programs and interventions so that we can break the cycle of poverty. Armed with the skills, resources, and—most importantly—confidence they need to succeed, our communities will be empowered to articulate and assert their worth.
Chloe McKenzie has combined her own personal experience, her passion for helping those who are underserved and her commitment to improving financial literacy to deliver a powerful and important message that every financial services firm needs to here and act upon.
I chose to work with Chloe because I know she can do the work to close the wealth gap for the students in East Orange. It's a no-brainer and we will see results.
