Helping Black Families Build Generational Wealth

Online event

Did you know Black college graduates have a lower homeownership rate than white people who dropped out of high school?

Our guest, Ruby "SunShine" Taylor, M.S.W, is an advocate for closing the racial wealth gap to make our world more financially equitable.

She’s the CEO and Founder of Financial Joy School, a virtual educational platform that provides access to financial education and investment tools to Black and Brown youth and their families.

Ruby is a double HBCU alumna (Howard University and Virginia Union University), and she harnesses the power of financial knowledge to bring connections, application, and education to establish generational wealth for black families.

A traumatic brain injury survivor, Ruby is a disabled Black, queer woman, wife, mother, daughter, aunt, sister and friend who is driven to make our world more equal, joyful, and just.

She is a motivational speaker and consultant for financial brands, including Wells Fargo, and has been featured in several leading publications, including The Motley Fool, Inc.com, Fast Company, Mashable.com and more.

Please join me on Friday, September 24th at 12pm ET / 9am PT to meet Ruby, grab some financial joy, and learn how she's making our world more financially equitable.
