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

Welcome to our 3rd annual study. Thank you for contributing to the growing conversation about the retirement savings gap among business owners and leaders.  As business owners and leaders, you are influencers and you have the opportunity to be a part of improving retirement savings behavior of your employees, colleagues, family and others.
 
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.
