The Prosp(a)rity Project is back with our second-annual 35*2 Free Financial Empowerment Conference packed with panels, keynotes, and activities centered around cultivating financial literacy!
More broadly, this event is devoted to drawing further attention to the two statistics at the root of our work, which are the approximately $35B in student debt & 35% financial literacy rate that put Black women at a sharp socioeconomic disadvantage.

Track 3: Further Along
Seasoned professionals and/or those with extensive financial understanding looking to level up in either or both regards
This track is designed for those well-entrenched into life as working professionals and ready to take legacy-building steps, whether it be through making more strategic moves personally, co-managing finances with a partner or beginning to plan for your child(ren)'s financial futures.
Do I have to be a Black woman to attend?
While the programming is tailored to meet the needs of Black women specifically, much of the content will be applicable to those of all backgrounds, races and genders, so we encourage any and all who are interested in participating to join the fun!
What's the meaning behind the name?
"35*2 Free" is derived from the two statistics which respectively show that Black women in the U.S. hold an estimated $35B in student loan debt and only a 35% financial literacy rate average. This conference is in large part an effort to raise further awareness of these disparities and help our organization drive the former figure down to $0 and latter number as close to 100% as we can achieve.
What can I look forward to?
Some of the highlights of the day include keynote addresses from top finance professionals, curated panel discussions co-hosted by industry-leading speakers, games/activities, entertainment, a networking expo and more!
