October 12, 2017 11:00 AM to October 12, 2017 5:00 PM CIWM Women's Educational Program "Your Life, Your Wealth, Your Legacy"

About the Center’s Women’s Programming

We believe affluent women continue to be overlooked in the marketplace. The Center organizes events for women that provide a safe and private educational environment. Programming focuses on critical family dynamics that in many cases are the most challenging issues. In addition to having several dynamic key-note women speakers, topic discussions are interactive and often facilitated panel discussions made up of women peers from a variety of backgrounds who are willing to generously share their experiences to allow others to benefit. The Center’s intent is to provide meaningful discourse that are free of advertisements, marketing, firm sponsors or biases and is intended to be purely informational and educational. UC Irvine is a premiere academic research institution and the Center is the premier resource for women managing wealth.

Programming Benefits

  1. A trusted network of peers and like-minded women
  2. It is an opportunity to share valuable information, resources, build relationships, network and bond with other affluent women
  3. Education and training enhancements customized to attendees’ interests

Note: Payment for this event can be made online with a credit card or by check via postal mail. After you provide the registration information online, you will be instructed to make your check payable to: UC Regents and mail it to: Lee Anne Maki, UCI 4293 Pereira Drive #3401, Irvine, CA 92697-3125.
