Girl, Get Your Credit Right!
Girl, Get Your Credit Right!Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated’s Beta Iota Omega Chapter’s Target 3-Economic Legacy committee is partnering with North Carolina A&T State University’s Dr. Danielle Winchester to present the “Girl, Get Your Credit Right!” workshop inspired by the personal finance book Girl, Get Your Money Straight! by Glinda Bridgforth published in 2000. This first workshop of the three-part series will be held on March 13, 2021 at 11:00 a.m via Zoom.In light of our current pandemic and the strain it continues to place on the economy and households across the United States, this workshop will address how families can repair and retain their credit as things start to return to a different normal. Good credit is vital for everything from buying a house to getting lower insurance rates and can even affect your employment.Dr. Winchester serves as the Associate Dean of the Willie A.
