Washington, D.C. - Nationwide and the Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) have announced the lineup for the 2021 Financial Empowerment Charlas (talks) series that provides financial education to Latinas and Latinos across the country. Building upon the success of last year’s inaugural campaign, this year’s series will focus on creating awareness about the most effective strategies to build wealth, considering the economic and cultural characteristics of the Hispanic community.

In recognition of April’s designation as Financial Literacy Month, Nationwide and HHF will host three live Charlas that deliver actionable insights on the following topics:

  • Wednesday, March 31 – Get Smart on Student Debt
  • Wednesday, April 14 – Kickstart Your Retirement
  • Wednesday, April 28 – Take Control of Your Money

“Our best partnerships begin with companies that share our values and vision, this is why we are thrilled about our continued relationship with Nationwide,” said Antonio Tijerino, President and CEO of HHF. “Nationwide’s leadership during an historic economic challenge has provided guidance, support and hope to our community through financial empowerment.”

To complement the live Charlas, Nationwide and HHF will present a four-part video-podcast series hosted by a panel of accomplished Hispanic personal finance experts. In the first episode, which premieres on Wednesday, May 5, certified financial planner Paul Roldan, financial freedom strategist Vivi Schenk, and fiduciary financial advisor Karen Vergara discuss the cultural nuances that influence financial behavior.

“Presenting the Charlas program, in partnership with the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, is unique in that it delivers culturally-influenced financial education from experts whose own journeys were shaped by their Hispanic heritage,” said Lu Yarbrough III, Nationwide’s Associate Vice President of Enterprise Diverse and Cause Marketing. “Nationwide continually looks for ways to support diverse communities and we look forward to sharing new Charlas content to educate and empower even more people to take control of their financial wellness.”
