International Women’s Day 2021

When it comes to gender equity in our society, we’ve only scratched the surface of what’s possible. So this is a call to all of us to challenge gender bias and the status quo, to do more than celebrate the achievements of women, but to ensure that they are no longer remarkable, but commonplace. Because it’s time to turn what’s possible into what’s real. Read on to see some encouraging trends, and how Wells Fargo supports the furtherance of women’s financial education, the advancement of women in business, and the realization of their financial goals.
