Financial Literacy Award

WHIN was honoured to receive a highly commended award in the Resource Category for Managing Money: Every Woman's Business at the Financial Literacy Australia (FLA) Awards ceremony. Sandra Morris and Toni Bentley went to Sydney to collect the award.

The Financial Literacy Australia Awards Program is the premier national program for acknowledging and celebrating the advancement of financial literacy work in Australia, so it was wonderful to receive such public recognition for WHIN's work in this area.

Financial literacy is a critical part of women's everyday lives and affects their opportunities, sense of security and overall health and wellbeing. Managing Money: Every Woman's Business incorporates a resource manual and training program to address the financial literacy needs of refugee and immigrant women. The resource and program were developed in direct response to the lack of visual, participatory and learner-centred financial literacy materials and education available for working with this group.
