She Leads About Us
She Leads is a women’s financial empowerment seminar series hosted by Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger as part of his multi-faceted financial literacy platform and is administered through the Securities and Charities Division.
About She Leads
Launched in 2019, She Leads was the first program of its kind for the State of Georgia hosted by Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger as part of his financial literacy platform.
She Leads offers an innovative format for disseminating free personal and business financial resources, enhancing networks, and providing insight, even to those who previously lacked that access. In-person seminars were hosted in Atlanta, Tifton, and Columbus.
In 2020, She Leads launched its online platform, going virtual in consideration of COVID-19. The free live stream webinars were able to reach larger audiences, provide the same quality information, and have interactive audience participation with polls and Q&A sessions

She Leads brings together leaders from the financial sector, representing the government and private sectors (including businesses owned by women), other institutions, and local communities to engage and collaborate with one another.
