Financial Literacy Month is April, and what better time for women in dance to inform ourselves on money management, financing a freelance career, negotiating fair pay contracts, and more?!
Thanks to resources pulled from our friends at Ellevest, DDP has put together a Financial Literacy Checklist to provide women in dance with a guide to educating, refreshing, or honing your financial literacy and self-care, because we get it. Not everyone has the luxury or privilege to think about the future. Women in dance are faced with a unique set of challenges and circumstances. Some of you may be terrified, uncertain about where you will get your next paycheck. We hope that with this tool, you will find something that you can control. Arm yourself with knowledge so that the uncertainty doesn’t run so deep.
These solutions are both short-term and long-term; all we are suggesting here is that you do what you can.
