Black Bloggers Collaboration: Brown Girls Invest Chicago Tour

Brown Girls Do Invest (BGDI) is a nonprofit organization established to educate girls and women in the African American community how to improve retirement savings, invest in real estate and acquire multiple streams of income. In an Ariel & Charles Schwab Black Investor Survey, “African-Americans were retreating from the stock market. After five straight years of steady increases in the percentages of Blacks who own stocks, only 61% of Blacks in 2003 had money in the market, down from 74% in 2002 and approaching the 1998 level of 57%. White stock ownership, held steady at 79%.”

African American women control the purse strings and are eager to learn how to invest and grow our money. Our spending power is massive and many are getting into investing at a fast pace.

Our experts are addressing the following topics & more:

  • How to invest in the stock market

  • Ways to invest in real estate

  • Acquire multiple streams of income

  • Business Development

  • Invest with any level of income

  • How to leave a legacy

Join BGDI to educate African American women to invest in the market to further improve our households and the economy. Guests will receive a booklet, panel discussion on current economic and business affairs, three featured speakers with a presentation, and one hour of Q&A.
