Homebuying 101: Claim Your Economic Power and Close the Gender Wealth Gap

Women are building equity and wealth in real estate at a faster pace than any other demographic in the country. Single women are buying homes at more than twice the rate of single men. Single women also make up the second-largest segment of homebuyers after married couples (in which women tend to be the majority influencer in homebuying decisions). More women homebuyers leads to a changing economic landscape and shapes the way wealth accumulates. Building equity is building power – and women are building it at record rates.

Dreaming of a place to call your own? At this (free!) townhall, we’ll talk about how home ownership can build wealth, and share the important steps to homebuying for renters and first time buyers. No dry spreadsheets – just real questions and answers. We’ll talk through financial readiness and financing options, the offer process, and current market conditions.

Join us for drinks and bites. Bring all your questions - this will be a fun and interactive Q&A format.

Let’s make this a happy new year!

Amanda Buhman, Leah Drury and Jill Numrich, Realtors, Urban Nest team at Lakes Sotheby’s International Realty

Are you a true ally? Are you sure? How do you know? Join Seena Hodges (The Woke Coach) for an engaging, intimate interaction about allyship, privilege and responsibility. During this workshop we will unpack the true meaning of allyship, consider ways that we can be better humans, and make personal plans for executing the work that true allyship requires.

Paid Family and Medical Leave Town Hall
Jan
17
6:00 PM18:00

Paid Family and Medical Leave Town Hall

Women make up nearly half of Minnesota’s labor force (48 percent) and more than one-quarter of its business owners (27 percent).  However only 13% of Minnesota workers have access to paid family and medical leave. That means women are forced to face impossible choices when new children are born or adopted and when serious personal or family health needs inevitably arise.  

As workers struggle to balance caregiving with their job responsibilities, many end up facing economic hardship. Caregiving demands may even lead to effects felt across years or a lifetime due to lost jobs, missed raises, and reduced Social Security benefits. Employers, especially small rural ones, are also struggling to attract and retain good workers in competition with larger metro area employers that can afford to offer such benefits. Our current system has failed and is costly to workers, their families, businesses, and our economy. It’s time to modernize our workplace standards and benefits.

At this townhall, we'll hear from experts/Moms/business owners and advocates about ways to address this and policy solutions that would provide paid family leave to all Minnesotans. 

Speakers:

Stephanie Hogansen, from the Children's Defense Fund MN

Margi Scott, from Take12

Alex West Steinman from The Coven

Learning to Code!

Adults can learn to Code with TKP (Teaching Kids Programming) Courseware! In this interactive workshop, absolute beginner programmers (adults) can try out the free lessons from the non-profit TKP (www.teachingkidsprogramming.org). TKP has worked with teachers and kids world-wide for over 11 years. Although, the courseware is designed to introduce kids ages 10 and up to core computation concepts via Logo-style (turtle) programming, we have found that it's a fun way for adult 'non-programmers' to try out coding in a safe, fun format.

In this group format, the visiting teachers will lead small groups to work together to have fun and experience coding.
