Many people save for retirement through their employer, who in turn applies gender-neutral saving rates, investment choices, and spending strategies in retirement. Intuitively this creates a sense of fairness, but this intuition masks the reality that many women face. Lifetime earnings and spending in retirement are anything but average for women. Consequently, the challenges women face are arguably greater than those confronted by men.

On February 21st, Diane Garnick, Chief Income Strategist at TIAA, will speak at Yale SOM on the topic of the gender retirement gap, which she has written extensively on. The talk is being sponsored by the International Center for Finance and jointly hosted by the student-led Investment Management Club and the Women in Management Club.

The talk will be held at 11:45 am – 12:45 pm in Classoom 4430.  Sign up here.
