About Us

Women's Symposium of Southern California

Our Mission

The Women’s Symposium of Southern California (WSSC) improves the quality of life, financial independence, and confidence of women in Southern California by hosting and promoting an annual event that is accessible and comprehensive in financial planning resources and STEM field awareness.

Our Approach

Are you a woman who is unsure about your finances? Do you feel like you don’t know enough about money, building wealth and the way finances work? We have a remarkable opportunity for you to learn, talk, and network with other women and professional leaders in your area, share laughs and stories over good refreshments and learn about the information you need to make better financial decisions.
We are building a community of women who desire to take charge of their financial future, expand their knowledge, and build their confidence regarding money and wealth. Whether you’re at the end of your rope or the top of the corporate ladder, there is always more to learn about how to lead yourself and your family. There are three main reasons to focus on women:
1.       Women live longer than men (Social Security Administration, 2012)
2.       Women still earn only 77 cents to a man’s dollar (U.S. Censure Bureau; September 2013)
3.       Women take more time off from work to care for family

Meet the Team

WSSC is 100% volunteer operated!  We are passionate about bringing you a fantastic symposium every year!
