In this episode of Off the Shelf, Cindy Cisneros, Vice President, Education Programs, Committee for Economic Development of The Conference Board (CED), interviews Jennifer Barrett, Head of Content at Fidelity Investments on her latest book, Think Like a Breadwinner: A Wealth-Building Manifesto for Women Who Want to Earn More (and Worry Less). 

Nearly half of working women in the U.S. are their household’s main breadwinner. Yet most women still aren’t being brought up to think like breadwinners. In fact, women are discouraged by institutional bias and cultural conditioning–from building their own wealth, pursuing their full earning potential, and providing for themselves and others financially. In this podcast, financial expert Jennifer Barrett reframes what it means to be a breadwinner and will answer questions on how she got to where she is today.
