Hosted by Merrill Lynch, “The Women’s Wealth Imperative” session at the 2015 Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit featured speakers Sharon Epperson, Racquel Oden and Black Entperise’s Senior Editor and Money Expert Stacey Tisdale, who talked about the importance of financial independence and the need for women to take charge of their money management.

The session was moderated by Black Enterprise Women of Power TV co-host Shartia Brantley, where panelists spoke to a standing-room only crowd about three things: how to get wealthy, stay wealthy and pass the wealth to future generations.

With a Merrill Lynch research report given to each of the session attendees, the audience gained insight on why they need to be more involved in investing.
