A Study of the Retirement Savings Gap of Women Business Owners & Leaders

Welcome to our 2nd annual study and thank you for contributing to the growing conversation about the retirement savings gap among business owners and leaders.

Women business owners and leaders lag behind their male counterparts when it comes to getting prepared for a financially secure retirement.  We are identifying barriers women face, discovering solutions and leading discussions that will help women entrepreneurs better prepare themselves and their workforce for a financially secure retirement.
